Cardiac Surgery ICU Score

BC Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Score

This scoring system is designed to help clinicians assess patients recovering from cardiac surgical procedures and determine their predicted 30-day mortality when entering the cardiac surgical intensive care unit.

It was built using all patients from all hospitals performing cardiac surgery in British Columbia, Canada, in a public system over a 10-year period.
