The PaO2 / FiO2 ratio is calculated without reference to the use of mode of mechanical ventilation and without reference to the use of PEEP.
The serum creatinine concentration is measured without reference to the use of dialysis.
Glasgow Coma Score is preferably calculated by the patient's nurse, and is scored conservatively ( for the patient receiving sedation or muscle relaxants, normal function is assumed, unless there is evidence of intrinsically altered mentation).
