WHAT DOES PROGNOSIS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Prognosis

Prognosis is a medical term for predicting the likely outcome of one's current standing. When applied to large statistical populations, prognostic estimates can be very accurate: for example the statement "45% of patients with severe septic shock will die within 28 days" can be made with some confidence, because previous research found that this proportion of patients died. However, it is much harder to translate this into a prognosis for an individual patient: additional information is needed to determine whether a patient belongs to the 45% who will die, or to the 55% who survive. A complete prognosis includes the expected duration, the function, and a description of the course of the disease, such as progressive decline, intermittent crisis, or sudden, unpredictable crisis.

Definition of prognosis in the English dictionary

The first definition of prognosis in the dictionary is a prediction of the course or outcome of a disease or disorder. Other definition of prognosis is the chances of recovery from a disease. Prognosis is also any forecast or prediction.
