We investigated to validate the simplified acute physiology score 3 (SAPS3) and to customize it in Korean ICUs. General and Australasia SAPS3 showed poor calibration, but the prognostic power was improved by customization. Prediction models should be customized before being used to predict mortality in different regions.
