From: Head-to-head comparison of qSOFA and SIRS criteria in predicting the mortality of infected patients in the emergency department: a meta-analysis

  Sensitivity (95% CI) Specificity (95% CI) PLR (95% CI) NLR (95% CI) DOR (95% CI) AUC (95% CI)
qSOFA 0.42 (0.31–0.54) 0.88 (0.83–0.92) 3.5 (2.8–4.4) 0.66 (0.56–0.78) 5 (4–7) 0.78 (0.74–0.81)
SIRS 0.81 (0.75–0.86) 0.41 (0.32–0.50) 1.4 (1.2–1.6) 0.47 (0.37–0.59) 3 (2–4) 0.70 (0.65–0.73)
