Abstract

severity assessment in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is important as it is associated with significant mortality. In this study, we compared a previously suggested severity assessment rule for CAP- SOAR (systolic blood pressure, oxygenation, age and respiratory rate)- against the CURB-65 criteria.
