The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictability of

complications by illness state, nutritional status, and energy

balance. Illness state was defined as physiological derangement

and measured by APACHE II scores. Nutritional status was defined

as body nutrient stores and measured by percent of ideal body

weight, serum albumin levels, and total lymphocyte counts.

Energy balance was defined as the difference between caloric

intake and energy requirement and calculated in that way. The

sample consisted of 150 American and 60 Taiwanese adults who had

ICU stays longer than 3 days, and were not pregnant, not

amputees, and not diagnosed as leukemia. Subjects were randomly

assigned to two groups, one for developing and one for validating

the predictive scoring system. A total of 2,547 observations

were analyzed using discriminant analysis. Parameters found to

be predictive were the measures of the above predictors upon ICU

admission and 2 days prior to the presence or resolution of

complications. Consistent predictive abilities and predictive

patterns in surgical versus medical, long-term versus short-term

stay, and American versus Taiwanese subjects established the

reliability of the effectiveness of the predictive scoring system.

The application of the predictive scoring system will increase ICU

nurses' involvement in complication assessment and management.
