Notes
  • This calculator represents findings from the literature referenced below. It is important to understand that these findings may not be representative of the experience in your local healthcare system.
  • Obesity is not objectively defined in the Bello-Chavolla study.[1]
  • COPD: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

 
Equations used
 
Score = AgeFactor + Diabetes + Obesity + Pneumonia + Chronic kidney disease + COPD + Immunosupression

 

 
Calculation Details and Variables
  • AgeFactor is assigned values by this ordered logic:
    • If Age ≥65 yr AgeFactor = 3
    • Else if Age ≥40 yr AgeFactor = 0
    • Else AgeFactor = -6.
  • Equation parameters such as Diabetes, have two or more discrete values that may be used in the calculation. The numbers in the parentheses, e.g. (0), represent the values that will be used.
