Three scoring systems exist to help identify patients at risk for clinical deterioration following a diagnosis of sepsis. However, these scoring systems exclude pregnant women in their study populations. Therefore, the authors of this study developed a pregnancy-specific sepsis scoring system (Sepsis in Obstetrics Score), which accounts for the physiological changes of pregnancy.
