With a decision criteria of 10 %, sensitivity - that is, the proportion of deaths predicted by the model - was better for SAPS II (9%) than for APACHE II (20 %); however, the false-positive rate was high for both (APACHE II 66.32 %, SAPS II 58.68 %); the overall correct classification was better for SAPS II (57.54 %) than for APACHE II (53.56 %). This study demonstrated that both models failed to predict mortality accurately - that is, overall calibration was poor.
