SOFA scoring for Peds

Good Morning,
Is there a separate SOFA score rubric for pediatric patients?


  • Thanks so much.  
    I have a follow up question. The article also mentioned the Pediatric Logistic Organ Dysfunction Score and Pediatric Multiple Organ Dysfunction Score.  Is the pediatric SOFA  the most commonly used? 

    I appreciate the help,

  • At Dayton Children's we haven't solely went to pSOFA, we continue to use SIRS + infection.  Our CDI team looks for an altered mental status or "ill appearing" "decreased activity" for further indicators to send queries.  Sepsis is definitely a tough diagnosis to know when to query!!

  • Jorde,
    Thank you so much.
