Background: So far, several scoring systems have been used to predict the prognosis of patients admitted to intensive care unit (ICU). Sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) and acute physiology and chronic health evaluation III (APACHE III) are two of these scoring systems. In this study, these two scoring systems were compared in patients with trauma hospitalized in ICU.Methods: In this retrospective cross-sectional descriptive study, 100 patients were randomly selected from those who admitted to the ICU of Alzahra hospital in Isfahan, Iran in, during 2016-2017, and divided into two groups of living and dead. Demographic and clinical data and laboratory results were extracted and analyzed from patient medical files.Findings: The scores calculated by two scoring systems were significantly higher in the dead group than the living group. There was a significant difference between the two groups based on the qualitative scores of the SOFA system. Based on the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, the sensitivity and the specificity was 90.32% and 94.20% for SOFA, and 90.32% and 86.96% for APACHE III, respectively.Conclusion: APACHEIII and SOFA scoring systems are with high sensitivity and the specificity to predict the prognosis of patients with trauma hospitalized in ICU, and cannot be considered superior to another. The simplicity of the SOFA in the calculation may make the assessment easier and less time-consuming.
