Mortality in Emergency Department Sepsis (MEDS) Score

The MEDS score is used to estimate the risk of death of a patient with sepsis in the emergency department. A score <7 is associated with <5% mortality, between 8-12, with 7% to 10% mortality, between 12 and 15, with 15% to 20% mortality, and >15, with mortality from 40% to 50%. A MEDS score > 10 is discriminating in the emergency department for community-acquired pneumonia with a high risk of death.
