- Does pt have respiratory failure requiring immediate intubation (eg, severe alveolar hemorrhage, muscle weakness)?
- Does pt have evidence of severe pulmonary hypertension (eg, CHF? Hypotensive?)?
- Does pt have extrathoracic manifestations of vasculitis (eg, seizures, acute renal failure, pulmonary/renal syndromes, acute abdomen, eye, sinus, ear findings, vasculitic skin lesions)?
