As a result, many authorities consider these entities part of the same disease spectrum This score is traditionally used for clinical research purposes in order to track patient response over time to treatment.
Has been used with moderate reliability to assess for post-extubation upper airway obstruction. The original score Westley was derived to objectively measure a clinical state in order to allow comparisons over time in response to treatment. The range of values for each of the five items was arbitrary and each was weighted based on the clinical implications of the most critical form of each sign. Follow-up studies demonstrated construct validity Klassen , with multiple studies showing high inter-rater reliability Klassen , Super Most commonly used scoring system for croup.
Designed to measure severity for research settings, but often applied to prognosticate. May be useful in determining treatment efficacy and patient disposition. Has fair inter-rater reliability in clinical users though better in research studies.
