Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
Damage inflicted on the body as the direct or indirect result of an external force, with or without disruption of structural continuity.
Systems for assessing, classifying, and coding injuries. These systems are used in medical records, surveillance systems, and state and national registries to aid in the collection and reporting of trauma.
Accidents on streets, roads, and highways involving drivers, passengers, pedestrians, or vehicles. Traffic accidents refer to AUTOMOBILES (passenger cars, buses, and trucks), BICYCLING, and MOTORCYCLES but not OFF-ROAD MOTOR VEHICLES; RAILROADS nor snowmobiles.
Injuries caused by impact with a blunt object where there is no penetration of the skin.
Specialized hospital facilities which provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for trauma patients.
Traumatic injuries involving the cranium and intracranial structures (i.e., BRAIN; CRANIAL NERVES; MENINGES; and other structures). Injuries may be classified by whether or not the skull is penetrated (i.e., penetrating vs. nonpenetrating) or whether there is an associated hemorrhage.
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
Injuries incurred during participation in competitive or non-competitive sports.
Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).

Outcome after severe head injury treated by an integrated trauma system. (1/79)

OBJECTIVES: To describe outcome after treatment of severe head injury within an integrated trauma system. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all patients with severe head injury admitted to the Royal London Hospital by the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) between 1991 and 1994. Type of injury was defined on initial computed tomography of the head and outcomes assessed 12 months after injury using the Glasgow outcome score. RESULTS: 6.5% of HEMS patients had long term severe disability (severe disability or persistent vegetative state on the outcome score); 34.5% made a good recovery. CONCLUSIONS: The concern that a large number of severely disabled long term survivors might result as a consequence of this system of trauma management is not confirmed. The case mix of severity of extracranial injuries in these patients makes comparison with other published series difficult, but these data fit the hypothesis that pre-hospital correction of hypoxia and hypotension after head injury improves outcome.  (+info)

Use of abdominal computed tomography in blunt trauma: do we scan too much? (2/79)

OBJECTIVES: To determine what proportion of abdominal computed tomography (CT) scans ordered after blunt trauma are positive and the applicability and accuracy of existing clinical prediction rules for obtaining a CT scan of the abdomen in this setting. SETTING: A leading trauma hospital, affiliated with the University of Ottawa. DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All patients with blunt trauma admitted to hospital over a 1-year period having an Injury Severity Score (ISS) greater than 12 who underwent CT of the abdomen during the initial assessment. Recorded data included age, sex, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score, ISS, type of injuries, number of abdominal CT scans ordered, and scan results. Two clinical prediction rules were found in the literature that identify patients likely to have intra-abdominal injuries. These rules were applied retrospectively to the cohort. The predicted proportion of positive CT scans was compared with the observed proportion, and the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy were estimated. RESULTS: Of the 297 patients entered in the study, 109 underwent abdominal CT. The median age was 32 years, 71% were male and the median ISS was 24. In only 36.7% (40 of 109) of scans were findings suggestive of intra-abdominal injuries. Application of one of the clinical prediction rules gave a sensitivity of 93.8% and specificity of 25.5% but excluded 23% of patients because of a GCS score less than 11. The second prediction rule tested could be applied to all patients and was highly sensitive (92.5%) and specific (100.0%). CONCLUSIONS: The assessment of the abdomen in blunt trauma remains a challenge. Accuracy in predicting positive scans in equivocal cases is poor. Retrospective application of an existing clinical prediction rule was found to be highly accurate in identifying patients with positive CT findings. Prospective use of such a rule could reduce the number of CT scans ordered without missing significant injuries.  (+info)

Sequelae after unintentional injuries to children: an exploratory study. (3/79)

GOAL: To determine the frequency and categories of sequelae related to accidental injuries (of all types) in childhood, a prospective follow up study was conducted on a geographically defined population near Paris, France. METHODS: The study concerned all child residents of one health care district, aged under 15 years, and hospitalised in the two public hospitals of the district, and/or transported by mobile emergency units, after an accident, during a one year period (in 1981-82; n = 785). Initial severity was scored using the injury severity score (ISS). Sequelae were defined as established impairments (leading or not to disabilities), identified by physicians, reporting their clinical diagnosis or complaints by the child and/or the family. RESULTS: After a follow up period of 3.6-29.2 months after the accident, six children died and 78 (10%) were lost to follow up. Among the 701 others, 73 (10.4%) presented 80 sequelae, major (limiting daily activities) in 44 children (6.3%), with no gender difference. These increased significantly with age. The main causes of major sequelae were eye injuries and sports related injuries to the limbs. ISS did not correlate well with sequelae, but the maximum abbreviated injury scale appeared to be a better predictor of long term functional prognosis. CONCLUSION: Prospective follow up and population based studies are still needed, especially on children's injuries initially perceived as benign, such as most of the sports related injuries in our study.  (+info)

Trends in incidence of pediatric injury hospitalizations in Pennsylvania. (4/79)

OBJECTIVES: This study analyzed short-term trends in pediatric injury hospitalizations. METHODS: We used a population-based retrospective cohort design to study all children 15 years or younger who were admitted to all acute care hospitals in Pennsylvania with traumatic injuries between 1991 and 1995. RESULTS: Injuries accounted for 9% of all acute hospitalizations for children. Between 1991 and 1995, admissions of children with minor injuries decreased by 29% (P < .001). However, admissions for children with moderate (P = .69) or serious (P = .41) injuries did not change. CONCLUSIONS: Significant declines in pediatric admissions for minor injuries were noted and may reflect both real reductions in injury incidence and changes in admission practices over the period of the study.  (+info)

Intracranial pressure monitoring and outcomes after traumatic brain injury. (5/79)

OBJECTIVE: Uncontrolled intracranial hypertension after traumatic brain injury (TBI) contributes significantly to the death rate and to poor functional outcome. There is no evidence that intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring alters the outcome of TBI. The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that insertion of ICP monitors in patients who have TBI is not associated with a decrease in the death rate. DESIGN: Study of case records. METHODS: The data files from the Ontario Trauma Registry from 1989 to 1995 were examined. Included were all cases with an Injury Severity Score (ISS) greater than 12 from the 14 trauma centres in Ontario. Cases identifying a Maximum Abbreviated Injury Scale score in the head region (MAIS head) greater than 3 were selected for further analysis. Logistic regression analyses were conducted to investigate the relationship between ICP and death. RESULTS: Of 9001 registered cases of TBI, an MAIS head greater than 3 was recorded in 5507. Of these patients, 541 (66.8% male, mean age 34.1 years) had an ICP monitor inserted. Their average ISS was 33.4 and 71.7% survived. There was wide variation among the institutions in the rate of insertion of ICP monitors in these patients (ranging from 0.4% to over 20%). Univariate logistic regression indicated that increased MAIS head, ISS, penetrating trauma and the insertion of an ICP monitor were each associated with an increased death rate. However, multivariate analyses controlling for MAIS head, ISS and injury mechanism indicated that ICP monitoring was associated with significantly improved survival (p < 0.015). CONCLUSIONS: ICP monitor insertion rates vary widely in Ontario's trauma hospitals. The insertion of an ICP monitor is associated with a statistically significant decrease in death rate among patients with severe TBI. This finding strongly supports the need for a prospective randomized trial of management protocols, including ICP monitoring, in patients with severe TBI.  (+info)

Patterns of injury among drivers hospitalized in Level-I Trauma Centers: have frontal airbags made a difference? (6/79)

This study describes the injuries of drivers discharged from Level-I Trauma Centers between 1995-1997. Differences in the drivers' injuries and outcomes by airbag deployment status and gender were evaluated using Chi 2 and T-tests. Data on 1,065 drivers (66 with airbags, 423 females) were obtained from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicle and Trauma Registries. Once admitted to trauma centers, drivers with airbags did not differ from drivers without airbags regarding the number, type, clustering, severity or outcome of their injuries. The only exception was that female drivers sustained more fractures to the upper extremities and less injuries to blood vessels and certain traumatic complications (p < 0.05).  (+info)

Factors influencing pediatric injury in side impact collisions. (7/79)

Side impacts collisions pose a great risk to children in crashes but information about the injury mechanisms is limited. The heights and weights of children vary widely and as a result, the injury patterns may vary across the pediatric age range. This study involves a case series of children in side impact collisions who were identified through Partners for Child Passenger Safety, a large child-focused crash surveillance system. The aim of the current study was to use in-depth crash investigations to identify injury mechanisms to children in side impact collisions. 93 children in 55 side impact crashes were studied. 23% (n = 22) of the children received an AIS > or = 2 (clinically significant) injury. In these 22 children, head (39%), extremity (22%), and abdominal injuries (17%) were the most common significant injuries. The cases revealed that serious injuries occur even in minor crashes. Cases that illustrate body region-specific injury mechanisms are discussed.  (+info)

Who can give a pediatric trauma history for children injured in bicycle crashes? (8/79)

Emergency Departments are important sites for injury surveillance but the quality of data collected has not been evaluated. This prospective cohort study assessed the ability of various respondents to provide circumstantial information following pediatric bicyclist trauma. A semi-structured survey tool was administered in the Emergency Department of a Level One Pediatric Trauma Center for 448 child bicyclists. The injured child provided more complete information when compared to witnesses and Emergency Medical Services personnel. No one respondent type provided the complete history. To obtain thorough injury circumstantial information, multiple respondents should be interviewed utilizing a semi-structured questionnaire.  (+info)

The number of seriously injured road users is used both as an indicator of traffic safety trends in Sweden and in more specific studies of, for example, different road user groups. A seriously injured person is defined as a person who suffers injuries that lead to permanent medical impairment of at least 1 percent. The term very seriously injured is used as a complement and is defined correspondingly but refers to injuries that lead to permanent medical impairment of at least 10 percent. In practice, the level of impairment is not known at the time of the accident, and therefore the number of seriously and very seriously injured persons are forecasted. The basis for the forecasts are Strada, the national database for road traffic accidents in Sweden, and a method developed by Folksam (a Swedish insurance company) that estimates the risk that a persons injuries will lead to permanent medical impairment in the future. The aim of this study is to present the size of the uncertainty of the ...
Statistics show that more than 7.5% of the South African population is living with a permanent disability.. Many of the people living with these disabilities have been under-compensated by the relevant schemes and funds since the medical professionals dealing with their assessments do not have the training on how to complete these assessments and claims. This could result in significant financial and reputational costs to the patient and medical professionals. ...

This paper describes the correlation of a persons age to the risk of injury occurrence and the corresponding injury severity in traffic accidents. A representative sample of belted drivers was analyzed by using data from the German In-Depth-Accident Study (GIDAS) to investigate the influence of age on injury severity and special injuries to different body regions. The study focused on two age groups: 17-30 year old (younger drivers) and older drivers 50 year old and older (50+). The injury risk was described as a function of delta-v and injury risk curves based on Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS). Furthermore, individual parameters like age and body mass index (BMI) as well as age and mass of the vehicle were considered. The statistical analysis was carried out using descriptive and multivariate statistics. This paper presents an overview of injury patterns of belted drivers and the probability of these drivers being injured in different accident scenarios ...

The Injury Severity Score (ISS) is an established medical score to assess trauma severity. It correlates with mortality, morbidity and hospitalization time after trauma. It is used to define the term major trauma. A major trauma (or polytrauma) is defined as the Injury Severity Score being greater than 15. The AIS Committee of the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) designed and improves upon the scale. The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) is an anatomically based consensus-derived global severity scoring system that classifies each injury in every body region according to its relative severity on a six-point ordinal scale: Minor Moderate Serious Severe Critical Maximal (currently untreatable). There are nine AIS chapters corresponding to nine body regions: Head Face Neck Thorax Abdomen Spine Upper Extremity Lower Extremity External and other. The ISS is based (see below) upon the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS). To calculate an ISS for an injured person, the body is ...
By Eric Sundquist. Many studies have shown the poor suffer more injuries and deaths from crashes than do wealthier residents of a city. A new study suggests that the major reason is that poor people are simply exposed to more traffic and more complex intersections in their neighborhoods.. The study, in the American Journal of Public Health, examined crash injuries at intersections in Montreal. Intersections in poorer neighborhoods saw 3.9 times more cyclist crash injuries than in the richest neighborhoods. For motor vehicle occupants, the rate was for 4.3 higher; for pedestrians it was 6.3 higher.. Mean traffic volume at intersections in the poorest neighborhoods was 2.4 times higher than in the wealthiest neighborhoods. The poorest neighborhoods also had more intersections with arterials and a higher proportion of four-way (as opposed to three-way) intersections. And, relevant to pedestrian and cyclist injuries, a greater number residents in poorer neighborhoods used more vulnerable, non-auto ...
The University of Alberta and the University of California, San Francisco are teaming up to launch the worlds first Open Data Commons for preclinical Spinal Cord Injury research (ODC-SCI)..

QISE-NET triplets will be brought into the program during the first year of operation through a series of quarterly proposal solicitations. Solicitations will be made only in the first year, to ensure that all triplets have a chance to fully integrate, mature and make progress on their projects, with a three year duration (renewal yearly by mutual agreement).. The typical award will consist of $10,000 per year to augment - not replace - the students current stipend, and will be used to reimburse travel to and local expenses at the company or national laboratory location for collaborative research, as well as for appropriate associated research expenses. Additional funding will be made available to allow for participation in the annual workshop.. This program will conduct yearly workshops for all of the participants at rotating locations. The workshops form an important mechanism for QISE-NET communications among ...
How do they work?. The curtain airbag activates instantaneously in the event of a side impact crash, deploying from the top of the door rails above the side window. They form a cushion between the driver or passenger and the window and stay in place if the car rolls over to protect their head.. Why do I need them?. Research conducted in the USA estimates that head protecting airbags can reduce driver deaths in the event of a side impact crash by close to 40%*. Without them, in a side impact crash there is little to protect your head from striking the side of the car or rigid objects like trees or poles.. How are curtain airbags different to other types of airbags?. Curtain airbags are one type of head protecting side airbag. There are other kinds too, such as combination head and torso designs.. Combination head and torso airbags mostly activate from the seat, but some types deploy from the door, offering you good protection to both head and body in side impact crashes. However, combination ...
Introduction: Helicopters play an important role in trauma; however, this service comes with safety risks, high transport costs, and downstream care charges. Objective: Our objective was to determine the characteristics of early discharged trauma patients (,24 h length of stay) in order to reduce overtriage. Methodology: Data were obtained from the trauma registries at one of two Level 1 trauma centers. Eligible patients included all scene trauma patients transported by helicopter to the Level 1 trauma centers from January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2017, who had a length of stay of 24 h or less. Patient factors such as age, gender, scene location, loaded miles, and transportation costs were collected. Trauma type, mechanism of injury, Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), Injury Severity Score, Revised Trauma Score, and prehospital vital signs were documented. Driving distances between the accident scene to local hospital, home of record to local hospital, and home of record to the Level I trauma ...

Results 560 cases were identified; 77% were male and 32% were children ,18 years of age. Rollovers (45%) were most common, followed by striking an object (22%) and ejection/fall (13%). Collisions with a motorised vehicle occurred in 8% of patients. Speeds ,20 mph were associated with higher Max Head Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) scores than those ≤20 mph (p = 0.05). Crashes with speeds ,30 mph had higher Max Head AIS scores than those ≤30 mph (p = 0.014). Higher speeds were also associated with a trend towards lower patient Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) scores. Only about 20% of victims overall were wearing a helmet. Competitive racers, although helmeted, had more severe head injuries than all other victims. Competitive racers had lower GCS scores than their helmeted non-racing peers (p , 0.05). Non-racers without helmets had lower GCS scores than their helmeted peers (p = 0.003). ...
Characterization of injury severity is crucial to the scientific study of trauma, yet the actual measurement of injury severity began only 50 years ago. In 1969, researchers developed the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) to grade the severity of individual injuries.

Background: Admission hyperglycemia is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Stress-induced hyperglycemia (SIH), a form of hyperglycemia induced by the stress response, is associated with increased patient mortality following TBI. However, admission hyperglycemia occurs not only in SIH but also in patients with diabetic hyperglycemia (DH). Current information regarding whether trauma patients with SIH represent a distinct group with differential outcomes compared to those with DH remains limited. Methods: Serum glucose concentration ≥200 mg/dL upon arrival at the emergency department was defined as hyperglycemia. Presence of diabetes mellitus (DM) was determined by patient history and/or admission glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) level ≥6.5%. In the present study, the patient cohort included those with moderate and severe TBI, as defined by an Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) score ≥3 points in the head, and excluded those who had additional AIS
Objectives: The objectives of this study were to quantify and compare dynamic motion responses between 50th percentile female and male volunteers in rear impact tests. These data are fundamental for developing future occupant models for crash safety development and assessment.. Methods: High-speed video data from a rear impact test series with 21 male and 21 female volunteers at 4 and 8 km/h, originally presented in Siegmund et al. (1997), were used for further analysis. Data from a subset of female volunteers, 12 at 4 km/h and 9 at 8 km/h, were extracted from the original data set to represent the 50th percentile female. Their average height was 163 cm and their average weight was 62 kg. Among the male volunteers, 11 were selected, with an average height of 175 cm and an average weight of 73 kg, to represent the 50th percentile male. Response corridors were generated for the horizontal and angular displacements of the head, T1 (first thoracic vertebra), and the head relative to T1. T-tests were ...
The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) score for the thorax was 3.2 ± 0.1 in the group with a BMI of less than 25 kg/m2, 3.3 ± 0.1 in the group with a BMI of 25 kg/m2 to 30 kg/m2, and 2.8 ± 0.2 in the group with BMI of more than 30 kg/m2 (p = 0.044). The Murray score at admission was elevated with increasing BMI (0.8 ± 0.8 for BMI , 25 kg/m2, 0.9 ± 0.9 for BMI 25-30 kg/m2, and 1.0 ± 0.8 for BMI , 30 kg/m2; p = 0.137); the maximum Murray score during hospitalization revealed significant differences (1.2 ± 0.9 for BMI , 25 kg/m2, 1.6 ± 1.0 for BMI 25-30 kg/m2, and 1.5 ± 0.9 for BMI , 30 kg/m2; p , 0.001). The incidence of pneumonia also increased with increasing BMI (1.6% for BMI , 25 kg/m2, 2.0% for BMI 25-30 kg/m2, and 3.1% for BMI , 30 kg/m2; p = 0.044 ...
and it may compete with the brain (another high energy consumer) for glucose. In mood disorders, stress in mood episodes or physiological stress activate homeostasis mechanisms from the brain and the immune system to solve the imbalance. The interaction between the selfish brain and the selfish immune system may explain various conditions of medical impairment in mood disorders, such as Metabolic Syndrome (MetS), obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and immune dysregulation. The objective of this study is to comprehensively review the literature regarding the competition between the brain and the immune system for energy substrate. Targeting the energetic regulation of the brain and the immune system and their cross-talk open alternative treatments and a different approach in the study of general medical comorbidities in mood disorders, although more investigation is needed.

As neoplasias pulmonares primárias são pouco comuns em canídeos. Quando ocorrem nesta espécie verifica-se uma maior predisposição para animais mais velhos e de médio a grande porte. Em canídeos, o tipo histológico mais comum destes tumores é o adenocarcinoma, estando referidos o adenocarcinoma papilífero e o carcinoma bronquíoloalveolar como os mais frequentes. Estes tumores surgem normalmente como uma massa solitária. Os animais afectados são assintomáticos até estado avançado do desenvolvimento tumoral. Quando surgem sintomas, os mais comuns são a tosse e a dispneia. A síndrome paraneoplásica mais frequente é a osteopatia hipertrófica (OH). A radiografia torácica é o método mais utilizado no diagnóstico das neoplasias pulmonares primárias, detectando normalmente uma massa, encaminhando o tratamento para a remoção cirúrgica da mesma e ainda auxiliando à sua localização precisa.

  • PCPS consists of a large-scale, child-specific crash surveillance system: insurance claims from State Farm (Bloomington, IL) function as the source of subjects, with a validated telephone survey and on-site crash investigations serving as the primary sources of data. (aappublications.org)
  • T rauma registries are an essential means of measuring the extent of injury through the collation and effective use of detailed data on injured patients. (mja.com.au)
  • 1 , 2 Trauma registries also provide an important source of data for determining the financial costs of injury. (mja.com.au)
  • Other than benchmarks for probability of death, which are based on estimations developed in the United States 20 years ago, there are no normative data to allow routine benchmarking of the performance of injury management in Australasian trauma systems. (mja.com.au)
  • In 2003, the vision for a binational pool of data on injury of a defined severity took shape in the form of the Australian and New Zealand National Trauma Registry Consortium (NTRC). (mja.com.au)
  • Data on all reported injury events (n = 257) in Swedish skydiving 1999-2003 (total 539 885 jumps) were retrieved from the Swedish Parachute Association. (bmj.com)
  • Most data were recorded prospectively, but data on the mechanism of injury, the number of participants on the trampoline at the time of injury, adult supervision and whether the activity occurred at school or in another organised setting were collected retrospectively. (bmj.com)
  • Because airbag-related injuries are associated with out-of-position children and small adult females, additional experimental data are needed to better estimate human tolerance. (sae.org)
  • Using longitudinal cohort data, we found a multidimensional set of predictors of work absence that differed at 12 and 24 months following injury. (bmj.com)
  • The Swedish Social Insurance Agency provided five-year post-injury data on sick leave in 2006. (omicsonline.org)
  • Accurate and consistent application of the AIS is fundamental to sound injury data collection globally. (eventbrite.com.au)
  • Pooled data analyses in previous studies that grouped substances with opposite effects on the central nervous system (CNS) may have masked the influence of substances on injury severity. (scielosp.org)
  • Data from NASS-CDS were used to describe characteristics of occupants in the front and rear rows and to determine the risk of serious injury (AIS 3+) for restrained rear row occupants by occupant age, vehicle model year, and impact direction. (iihs.org)
  • According to the latest World Health Organization's (WHO) data repository for 2015, injuries accounted for 364,824 deaths in infants and children aged between 0-4 years [ 5 ]. (mdpi.com)
