SOI/ROM

The representation of the calculated severity of illness and risk of mortality. It is not really a ratio; it just is written this way as a sort of shorthand. SOI and ROM are stratified into minor, moderate, major, and extreme, and every condition has 4 categories. They are not directly comparable – a 2/1 trimalleolar fracture cannot be compared to a 2/1 acute inferior wall myocardial infarction.
