croup scoring systems. i am looking for information on the comparisons between westley and modified thassig scoring systems in pre hospital emergency medicine.I am on my final year of my degree course in Paramedic Science at University Limerick here in Ireland and my research proposal question is about the above scoring systems as we do not have this in Ireland Pre Hospital and i was looking at researching this as a possible addition to our practice to identify the svereity of the disease when it presents in the Pre Hospital Invironment.

- Answered 15 Feb 2020 Conflict of interest declaration: None I posted this Q on Twitter and got a couple of responses contained in the thread referenced below . But the text was: Tweet 1 "I am sure someone must have done this work. I don’t find croup scores particularly useful to be honest. There is an tendency to over treat which I think is compounded using individual clinical features rather than just an overall impression…" Tweet 2 "And probably such an infrequency of the really serious cases like epiglottis is and bacterial tracheitis since vaccinations that most people’s perception of what constitutes severity has shifted?"
