Table 4 Proposed prediction tools for multidrug-resistant pathogens in patients admitted with hemodialysis-associated pneumonia

From: Proposed risk factors for infection with multidrug-resistant pathogens in hemodialysis patients hospitalized with pneumonia

Risk of MDR pathogens Predictive factors No. of patients No. (%) of patients isolated with MDR pathogens
Low PSI score ≤ 147 and no recent hospitalization 52 4 (7.6%)
Moderate PSI score > 147 or recent hospitalization 39 11 (28.2%)
High PSI score > 147 and recent hospitalization 14 9 (64.2%)
