The MEXSOFA score is used to track a person's status during the stay in an intensive care unit (ICU) to determine the extent of a person's organ function or rate of failure.
The MEXSOFA was calculated using the original SOFA scoring system with two modifications: the PaO2/FiO2 ratio was replaced with the SpO2/FiO2 ratio, and the evaluation of neurologic dysfunction was excluded. MEXSOFA was created by Dr. Silvio A. Ñamendys Silva.
The MEXSOFA score is composed of scores for five organ systems (respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, liver and coagulation), with a possible total score ranging from 0 to 20 points. There are two differents results: Initial and 48 Hrs. After.
