ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study which noted whether CURB65, CRB65, and Pneumonia Severity Index (PSI) differ for predicting mortality in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). The study was conducted by researcher J.D. Chalmers and colleagues, and was published in a 2010 issue of the journal "Thorax." The study revealed that CURB65, CRB65, and the Pneumonia Severity Index (PSI) do not differ in predicting 30-day mortality in patients with community-acquired pneumonia.
