An objective physiologic approach to therapy of high-risk postoperative patients was developed using survival as the criterion to determine the relative importance of variables and optimal goals for these variables. A protocol, based on a branch chain decision tree, also was developed from outcome data. When tested prospectively against the standard of care, this protocol markedly reduced mortality and morbidity.
