    Emergency Heart Failure Mortality Risk Grade (EHMRG)

    Estimates 7-day mortality of emergency CHF patients.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    This score is not intended for use in dialysis-dependent patients.
    When to Use
    Why Use

    The Emergency Heart Failure Mortality Risk Group (EHMRG) was designed to be used in the emergency department to predict 7-day mortality (recommending admission for those with high risk of mortality in 7 days).

    While most patients with heart failure are likely short of breath, feeling unwell, and amenable to admission, in the case they are not amenable, this tool may help educate and caution patients about their risk of going home.
