Our goal in this work was to develop predictive risk models for the impending use of vasopressors in an intensive care unit (ICU), and to make model comparisons between the general population and patients with pneumonia and pancreatitis.
Significantly more accurate and well-calibrated models were developed for the two subpopulations – pneumonia and pancreatitis – than for the general population of ICU patients. This finding challenges one-model-fits-all approaches to overall predictive risk modeling and instead supports tailored modeling.
