DIAZ-TRIBALDOS, Diana Carolina et al. Determination of prognostic value of the OESIL risk score at 6 months in a Colombian cohort with syncope evaluated in the emergency department; first Latin American experience. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.88, n.3, pp.197-203. ISSN 1665-1731.


To establish the prognostic value, with sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value for the OESIL syncope risk score to predict the presentation of severe outcomes (death, invasive interventions, and readmission) after 6 months of observation in adults who consulted the emergency department due to syncope.


Observational, prospective, and multicentre study with enrolment of subjects older than18years,who consulted in the emergency department due to syncope .Are cord was mad of the demographic and clinical information of all patients. The OESIL risks core was calculated, and severe patient out comes were followed up during a 6 month period using telephone contact. Results: A total of 161 patients met the inclusion criteria and were followed up for 6 months. A score above or equal to 2 in the risk score, classified as high risk, was present in 72% of the patients. The characteristics of the risk score to predict the combined outcome of mortality, invasive interventions, and readmission for a score above or equal to 2 were 75.7, 30.5, 43.1, and 64.4% for sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value, respectively.


A score above or equal to 2 in the OESIL risk score applied in Colombian population was of limited use to predict the studied severe outcomes. This score will be unable to discriminate between patients that benefit of early admission and further clinical studies.
