The Value of Trauma Scores: Predicting Discharge after Traumatic Brain Injury

Abstract:
The relationship of acute injury severity measures to discharge disposition was studies for 378 adults consecutively hospitalized with TBI at a Level I Trauma Center. The Combined Trauma Score Injury Severity Score (TRISSRTS) was predictive of discharge to home or acute rehabilitation versus nursing home or death. Excluding those who died or discharge to a nursing home, the Revised Trauma Score and Injury severity Score were predictive of discharge to home versus inpatient rehabilitation. Testing these 2 predictive models on a sample of 4,625 patients with TBI treated at the same facility revealed sensitivities of 98% and 94% respectively
