Early identification of the sickest patients or those with higher risk of complications may allow for earlier intervention, hence potentially improve outcomes Any patient over 50 years of age is automatically classified as risk class 2, neuomnia if they otherwise are completely healthy and have no other risk criteria. The initial management decision of patients with CAP is to determine the site of care outpatients clazificacion hospitalization in a medical ward or ICU and this depends on the severity of the disease.

Although the PSI was initially developed as a prediction rule to identify patients who were at low risk for mortality, different studies have shown that its implementation in the Emergency Departments increased the outpatient treatment rates of patients at low risk without compromising their safety. Simpler criteria are needed to evaluate the clasificaciob of mortality in patients with CAP.
