Erratum: Correction of Figure

We found an error in this article. Figure 2 was published incorrectly. In the legends of the figure, SOFA and qSOFA should be green and blue lines, respectively. The correct figure is as following.

Figure 2.

Area under the receiver operating characteristic curves (AUROCs) for discriminatory capacity for 28-day mortality and ICU mortality. (A) Twenty-eight–day mortality. AUROC: SOFA, 0.74 (95% CI, 0.68 to 0.79); qSOFA, 0.59 (95% CI, 0.53 to 0.66); SIRS, 0.60 (95% CI, 0.54 to 0.66). (B) ICU mortality. AUROC: SOFA, 0.74 (95% CI, 0.68 to 081); qSOFA, 0.59 (95% CI, 0.52 to 0.66); SIRS, 0.63 (95% CI, 0.57 to 0.70). SOFA: Sequential Organ Failure Assessment; qSOFA: quick SOFA; SIRS: systemic inflammatory response syndrome; CI: confidence interval; ICU: intensive care unit.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
