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.
To introduce the Hemorrhage Intensive Severity and Survivability (HISS) score, based on the fusion of multi-biomarker data; glucose, lactate, pH, potassium, and oxygen tension, to serve as a patient-specific attribute in hemorrhagic trauma. One hundred instances of Sensible Fictitious Rationalized Patient (SFRP) data were synthetically generated and the HISS score assigned by five clinically active physician experts (100 [5]). The HISS score stratifies the criticality of the trauma patient as; low(0), guarded(1), elevated(2), high(3) and severe(4). Standard classifier algorithms; linear support vector machine (SVM-L), multi-class ensemble bagged decision tree (EBDT), artificial neural network with bayesian regularization (ANN:BR) and possibility rule-based using function approximation (PRBF) were evaluated for their potential to similarly classify and predict a HISS score. SVM-L, EBDT, ANN:BR and PRBF generated score predictions with testing accuracies (majority vote) corresponding to 0.91 ± 0.06, 0.93

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 ...

Trauma is the primary cause of mortality and morbidity in the pediatric population. Great efforts have been made to educate the public on many safety issues. However, unintentional injury and death rates in children remain high. Pediatric trauma should be considered a preventable disease. In caring for the injured child, it is imperative that the healthcare provider consider the unique anatomic and physiologic parameters of children. These factors predispose the child to unique patterns of injury as well as unique resuscitative requirements. This course will focus on the patterns of childhood trauma and measures to reduce the mortality and morbidity of these devastating injuries.

Background: Anatomy-based injury severity scores are commonly used with physiological scores for reporting severity of injury in a standardized manner. However, there is lack of consensus on choice of scoring system, with the commonly used injury severity score (ISS) performing poorly for certain sub-groups, eg head-injured patients. We hypothesized that adding a dichotomous variable for polytrauma (yes/no for Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) scores of 3 or more in at least two body regions) to the New Injury Severity Score (NISS) would improve the prediction of in-hospital mortality in injured patients, including head-injured patients-a subgroup that has a disproportionately high mortality. Our secondary hypothesis was that the ISS over-estimates the risk of death in polytrauma patients, while the NISS under-estimates it. Methods: Univariate and multivariable analysis was performed on retrospective cohort data of blunt injured patients aged 18 and over with an ISS over 9 from the Singapore ...
Background: Trauma is the leading cause of death in the developed world. In Mulago hospital, it is the single most common indication for admission in the surgical wards. The Kampala Trauma Score II , recommended for use in resource poor setting is a modification of the Injury Severity Score and the Revised Trauma Score and it compares well with the New Injury Severity Score. Objective of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of admission venous lactate levels for injury severity and predict early outcome. Methods: This was a mixed design study with both a cross-sectional design to determine injury severity and prospective cohort design to predict early outcome. A total of 502 trauma patients were conveniently and consecutively recruited daily over a period of 2 months from the A and E department of Mulago Hospital. Pre-resuscitation venous lactate levels were determined on arrival to the emergency department and the patient concurrently given a KTS II score .Admitted patients were ...
In this study, we found that the trauma volume of our regional trauma center was appropriate, comparable to that in level I trauma centers in the US. The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma criteria for level I trauma center verification include an annual number of at least 1,200 patients, of which at least 240 must have an ISS ,15 [8]. Before the establishment of the regional trauma center, there were about 250 patients with severe trauma (ISS ,15) annually in GMC Trauma Center. Previous studies have shown that the establishment of a designated trauma center and the centralization of the management of severely injured patients can result in better outcomes [5,9]. Therefore, an increased patient volume after trauma center establishment could help in fulfilling the purpose of the plan. In addition, an increasing rate of direct transportation of severely injured patients via emergency medical services (EMS) was observed in this study. In one study from Korea, the proportion of ...

BACKGROUND: The state of Floridas trauma system is organized into seven regions, two of which lack designated pediatric trauma centers. Injured children residing in these regions often require transfer out of their home region for definitive care. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the current regionalization approach, focusing on variations between regions. METHODS: Using the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration database, we identified all trauma patients 15 years old or younger admitted between 2009 and 2014. Patients with high-risk injury (ICD-9 Injury Severity Score < 0.85) who did not receive definitive treatment at a pediatric trauma center (PTC) were considered undertriaged. Outcomes of interest included mortality and long-term disability. Patients who were definitively treated at a facility outside their home region, but who had low risk injuries (ICD-9 Injury Severity Score > 0.9), required no procedures or ICU monitoring, and were ...
The regionalization of trauma care, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act of 1986, the advent of Accountable Care Organizations and bundled payments have brought Level 1 trauma centers (TC) to a new crossroads. By protocol, injured patients are preferentially transferred to designated TCs when a higher level of care is indicated. Trauma transfers frequently come during off hours and may not always appear to be related to injury severity. Based on this observation, we hypothesized patients transferred from regional hospitals to Level 1 TCs would have lower injury severity scores (ISS) and unfavorable payor status. We queried our TC registry to identify trauma transfers (TTP) and primary trauma patients (PTP) treated at our level 1 TC between 2004 and 2012. Demographics, payor status, length of stay (LOS), injury severity score (ISS), and discharging service were compared. 5699 TTP and 11147 PTP were identified. Uninsured patients comprised 11 % (n = 602) of TTP compared with 15 % ...

Many trauma hospitals provide in-house trauma attendings to improve the timeliness of care and to provide housestaff supervision. Frequently, this involves some expense for the hospital. A recent study in the Journal of Trauma examined the financial impact of in-house attendings in an urban Level I trauma center.. Bellevue Hospital in New York City implemented an in-house attending policy in October of 2007. The study looked at the year prior to and the year after implementation. It focused primarily on the number of operative cases performed during nights and on weekends. The biggest changed noted was a four-fold increase in the number of cholecystectomies performed and 1.2 day decrease in the length of stay for those patients.. Using several financial approximations, they concluded that the hospital received an increased revenue of $854K, while the in-house attending program cost the hospital $750K during the year. The study raises a number of questions, though. The average length of stay, ...
