VQI: Respiratory Adverse Event Risk Post Vascular Surgery

Estimate the risk of pneumonia or respiratory failure after vascular surgery


The Vascular Quality Initiative Postoperative Respiratory Adverse Event Risk Calculator was created utilizing a cohort of 52,000 vascular surgery patients to estimate the incidence of post-operative respiratory adverse events (pneumonia or respiratory failure). This score was internally validated and externally validated with the National Inpatient Sample and National Surgical Quality Initiative Program.
