ICH Score


ICH Score

30 day mortality:

  • 0 points: 0%
  • 1 point: 13%
  • 2 points: 26%
  • 3 points: 72%
  • 4 points: 97%
  • 5 points: 100%
  • 6 points: 100% (estimated)


A more recent retrospective study from Emory University School of Medicine showed that the original ICH score did not accurately predict the mortality rate in their patient cohort (See figure below).  Study suggests that mortality rates based on the ICH score need to be re-evaluated.
