The SORT is a pre-operative risk prediction tool for death within 30 days of surgery. It has been developed and validated for use in inpatient non-neurological, non-cardiac surgery in adults (aged 16 or over).
This web resource is the result of a collaborative effort between NCEPOD researchers (Karen Protopapa and Neil Smith) and doctors in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine who are part of the SOuRCe team (Ramani Moonesinghe and Jo Simpson).
