      The study on risk classification was conducted on 183 hospitalized dengue patients (‎4 DF, 179 DHF)‎. The severity of the risk criteria was determined based on three blood investigations, namely, platelet (‎PLT)‎ count (‎less than or equal to 30 000 cells per mm3)‎, haematocrit (‎HCT)‎ (‎increase by more than or equal to 20%)‎, and either aspartate aminotransferase (‎AST)‎ level (‎raised by 5-fold the normal upper limit)‎ or alanine aminotransferase (‎ALT)‎ level (‎raised by 5-fold the normal upper limit)‎. The patients were divided into three groups based on their ...
