Author information

National Library of Medicine, US National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA.


The clinical literature presents four different scoring systems (SS) for the diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) by four institutions: ISTH, JMHLW, JAAM and KSTH. In this study a Java program was written to retrieve medical records from the MIMIC-II database and apply the criteria of all four. The program then quantified the agreement of each DIC SS with each other and demonstrated notorious dissent. Furthermore, the average internal composition of each score was also quantified.
