Variables Omitted in Box in: Does This Adult Patient With Suspected Bacteremia Require Blood Cultures?

JAMA. 2013;309(4):343. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.210984

Variables Omitted in Box: In the Rational Clinical Examination entitled “Does This Adult Patient With Suspected Bacteremia Require Blood Cultures?” published in the August 1, 2012, issue of JAMA (2012;308[5]:502-511), 3 variables were inadvertently omitted from the “minor” criteria of the clinical prediction rule by Shapiro et al33 in the Box on page 508. The 3 variables are platelet count <150 000/μL, neutrophils >80%, and band forms >5%. This article was corrected online.
