The CURB Score includes points for confusion and blood urea nitrogen, which in the acutely ill elderly patient, could be due to a variety of factors. Several other more recent validation criterips in several different countries show increasing mortality and even need for intubation with increasing CURB scores, ranging from Can help stratify which patients need ICU admission.
While many pneumonias are actually viral in nature, typical practice is to provide a course of antibiotics given the pneumonia may be bacterial.
Creating an account is free, easy, and takes about 60 seconds. Validation of predictive rules and indices of severity for community acquired pneumonia. The CURB has been compared to the pneumonia severity index in predicting mortality from pneumonia. Twenty-seven with low risk, 24 with moderate risk and 11 with high risk according to CURB65 and their mortality rates were 7. CURB is fast to compute, requires likely already-available patient information, and provides an excellent risk stratification of community acquired pneumonia.

Moreover, CRB is a more practical score since it does not use laboratorial variables. Content last reviewed January “.
For patients scoring high on CURB, it would be prudent to ensure initial triage has not missed the presence of sepsis. Patrick Charles’s publications, visit PubMed.
