Conditional information

The SAPS 3 is an externally validated tool that accurately predicts ICU mortality. The score was evaluated and compared with the APACHE II and the SAPS 2. The performance of the SAPS 3 was similar to that of the APACHE II and the SAPSII
Discrimination of the SAPS 3 model showed c-statistics up to 0.89. The C-SAPS 3 score appeared to have the best calibration curve on visual inspection.
