Abstract

With advances in the treatment of sepsis, the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) has been losing its prognostic power. Since the SIRS category is no longer used for the diagnosis of sepsis, the disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) diagnostic criteria released by Japanese Association for Acute Medicine (JAAM) should be modified. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the appropriateness of replacing the SIRS score with antithrombin activity in JAAM-DIC diagnostic criteria. We analyzed data from 819 septic patients who had received recombinant thrombomodulin. The relationships between the 28-day mortality rate and baseline laboratory and clinical parameters were examined using univariate and multivariate analyses, and the impact of replacing the SIRS criteria with antithrombin activity was evaluated. The SIRS score, prothrombin time ratio, and antithrombin activity were associated with the 28-day mortality rate (P values = 0.013, 0.018, and 0.003, respectively, by multivariate analysis). A modified version of the JAAM-DIC diagnostic criteria using an antithrombin activity <70 % was capable of diagnosing the identical number (n = 706) and a similar severity of patients (mortality, 34.6 % versus 34.8 %). Since anticoagulant therapy is expected to be more effective in patients with more severe coagulation disorders, the modified version of the JAAM-DIC diagnostic criteria might be useful for discriminating patients with sepsis who are good candidates for anticoagulant therapy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 October 2016.
All research outputs
#2,931,005
of 15,918,484 outputs
Outputs from Critical Care
#2,158
of 5,030 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#62,339
of 267,853 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Critical Care
#46
of 73 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,918,484 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 81st percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,030 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 15.6. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,853 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 73 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
