Introduction: Prioritization in the admission of critical patients at the intensive care unit plays an important role in reducing mortality and hospital stay. The aim of this study was to determine the mortality rate of patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU(of Shahid Chamran Hospital of Ferdows City with Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 80 patients admitted to the Intensive care unit of Shahid Chamran Hospital of Ferdows were selected through the convenience sampling method, according to the inclusion criteria from January 2016 to January 2017. The tool of the study included demographic questionnaire and APACHE II. The survival or death of patients and the length of ICU stay were recorded. Data were analyzed with the Chi-square and independent t-test using SPSS version 21.
Results: The mortality rate among all patients was 40% and the predicted mortality rate with the APACHE score was 25%. The mean APACHE II score was 14.9 ± 8.4 and 17 ± 4.6 in the surviving patients and the dead patients, respectively. The difference between them was significant (P value < 0.05). There was a significant correlation between APACHE II score and the mortality rate of patients (P value < 0.05, r = 0.220).
Conclusions: The actual mortality percentage was far from the estimated percentage calculated by APACHE II. Conclusions in this regard require further researches.
