Trauma scores


Trauma Score Systems for
Quality Assessment

Lefering R. Eur J Trauma 2002; 28:52-63

"Trauma score systems are an important tool for describing the severity of trauma victims for comparative analyses. While the ISS is by far the most frequently applied score in the literature, especially for describing patient groups in clinical studies, more sophisticated scores like TRISS or ASCOT, sometimes used with readjusted coefficients, provide more accurate risk of death predictions. For a group of patients, the average predicted mortality rate can be used as an external standard the actual outcome is compared with. These comparisons play a central role in many quality improvement programs, either for comparing different hospitals, for evaluating sequential phases of time, or for identifying problematic subgroups or conditions in trauma care (audit filters)."
