Functional Comorbidity Index Groll et al. 2005 Functional Comorbidity Index

The Functional Comorbidity Index (FCI) was developed specifically for use in the general population with physical function, not mortality, as the outcome of interest. The FCI can be used to adjust for the effect of comorbidity on physical function in the same manner that other indices are used to adjust for the effect of comorbidity on mortality.
- Abbreviations-
ARDS: acquired respiratory distress syndrome
