May be a more sensitive indicator of occult shock, especially in trauma or acute hemorrhage.
Predicts 30-day outcome of patients with pulmonary embolism using 11 clinical criteria.
Predicts 30-day outcome of patients with PE, with fewer criteria than the original PESI.
Standardizes severity of traumatic injury based on worst injury of 6 body systems.
Predicts the need for massive transfusion based on clinical and laboratory data.
Determines need for massive transfusion in trauma patients.
Defines the severity of sepsis and septic shock.
Provides Light's Criteria to help determine if pleural fluid is exudative.
Predicts ICU mortality based on lab results and clinical data.
Predicts mortality in patients with alcoholic hepatitis by lab results and age.
Calculates PO/IV NAC dosing for acetaminophen overdose (and nomogram to determine toxic 4 hour level).
Recommends who should be immediately referred for liver transplant.
Estimates viability of an extremity after trauma, to determine need for salvage vs empiric amputation.
Stratifies Upper GI bleeding patients who are "low-risk" and candidates for outpatient management.
Calculates recommended fluid type, rate and volume to correct hyponatremia slowly (or more rapidly if seizing)
Based on age and CT findings; estimates mortality.
Estimates cirrhosis severity.
Estimates mortality of community-acquired pneumonia to help determine inpatient vs. outpatient treatment.
Calculates the expected pCO2 compensation in a purely metabolic acidosis.
Objectifies risk of pulmonary embolism.
Calculates free water deficit by estimated total body water.
Estimates mortality in patients with STEMI.
Calculates expected serum osmolarity, for comparison to measured osmolarity to detect unmeasured compounds in the serum.

Predicts outcomes, especially in pediatric patients; helps determine need for ECMO.
Calculates the MELD score to quantify end-stage liver disease for transplant planning.
Calculates ideal body weight by the Devine formula.
Determines the cause of renal failure. Similar to the FENa, but can be used on patients on diuretics.
