Cumulative illness rating scale (CIRS)

The CIRS score (Cumulative Illness Rating Scale) allows a relevant comparison of medical burden and treatment results in geriatric patients with variable and complex pathologies.

Interpretation of the result: Cumulative illness rating scale (CIRS)

For each organ system, rate according to the grid:

0. No problems: No pathologies affecting this system or previous medical problems that are not clinically significant.

1. Mild problem: Mild current problem or significant past problem.

2. Moderate problem: Moderate impairment or morbidity and/or requiring treatment (first line).

3. Severe problem: Severe pathology and/or constant and disabling impairment and/or difficult control of chronic problems (complex therapeutic regimen).

4. Very serious problem: Extremely severe illness and/or immediate treatment required and/or organ failure and/or serious functional incapacity.
