Risk of hospital mortality was calculated based on SAPS II score. The score consisted of 17 variables (12 physiology variables; age; type of admission, i.e. scheduled surgical, unscheduled surgical, or medical; and three underlying disease variables, i.e. immunodeficiency syndrome, metastatic cancer, and hematologic malignancy). It is a validated generic severity assessment scoring that converts into a probability of hospital mortality without having to specify a primary diagnosis.
