Abstract

Introduction: Sepsis is a syndrome of physiologic, biochemical and pathologic abnormalities induced by infection and has been associated with high mortality and morbidity. This study aimed to compare Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) criteria, Pitt bacteremia score and quick Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) for the prediction of mortality in patients with sepsis due to Gram-negative bacteremia.
