Candida Score Calculator You can easily remember spectrum of activity with my free visual critical care antibiotic guide here. If you are a human and are seeing this field, please leave it blank. To determine the likelihood of invasive candidiasis vs colonization in non-neutropenic critically ill patients. Severe Sepsis 2 points Total Parenteral Nutrition 1 point Initial Surgery 1 point Multifocal Candida Colonization 1 point Candida Score <3 points = 2.3% Risk of invasive candidiasis without treatment 3 points = 8.5% Risk of invasive candidiasis without treatment 4 points = 16.8% Risk of invasive candidiasis without treatment 5 points = 23.6% Risk of invasive candidiasis without treatment Evidence link #1 In a large cohort of nonneutropenic critically ill patients in whom Candida colonization was prospectively assessed, a "Candida score">2.5 accurately selected patients who would benefit from early antifungal treatment. Evidence link #2 Our results confirm that the "Candida score" is an interesting tool to differentiate among ICU patients who exhibit hospital-acquired severe sepsis or septic shock those would benefit from early antifungal treatment (score > 3) from those for whom invasive candidiasis is highly improbable (score ≤ 3).
