McMahon Rhabdomyolysis Risk Score
Predict the risk of severe acute kidney injury or mortality in patients with rhabdomyolysis
The McMahon score was developed to predict the risk of severe acute kidney injury or mortality in patients presenting to the hospital with rhabdomyolysis (defined as a serum CPK on admission of >1000 U/L and a peak CPK of >5000 U/L)
The score identifies a low risk population who are unlikely to have severe adverse outcomes including AKI as a result of the injury. The AUC for the final model was 0.82 in the entire cohort.
The score was validated in a follow-up paper by an independent group.
