Apache Physiological Variable
variable name Heart Rate
unit beats/min
absolute max allowed 205
warning max 250
high score 4 >=180
high score 3 >=140 and <180
high score 2 >=110 and <140
high score 1
score 0 >=70 and <110
low score 1
low score 2 >=55 and <70
low score 3 >=40 and <55
low score 4 <40
AP phys warnMin 10
AP phys absMin 5


This value is used to generate the APACHE Score.

Collecting Apache physiological variables

There are some specific rules to follow in choosing which one of several lab results to collect.

See APACHE physiological variable collection for details.

Cross Chcks

Rules described in APACHE_physiological_variable_collection#Exceptionally_high_or_low_values are implemented by Check APACHE physiological variable high low.
