    Geneva Risk Score for Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Prophylaxis

    Predicts need for VTE prophylaxis in admitted patients.
    Favorite

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Note: this score is different from the Geneva Score (Revised) for PE, which diagnoses PE in patients presenting with relevant signs and symptoms.

    Why Use

    Wide variation exists in the proportion of patients in a given institution who are given VTE prophylaxis (29-89% range in one study, Chopard 2006). This score can help institutions and individuals make evidence-based decisions on who is at sufficiently low risk for VTE so as to avoid unnecessary prophylaxis.
