SOFA scoring for Peds
Is there a separate SOFA score rubric for pediatric patients?
Please refer to this article
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!!
Thank you so much.
