The Injury Coding Manual is a medically accurate, concise and practical handbook for use by investigators trained in the various motor vehicle crash data collection systems under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The handbook incorporates all revisions contained in the 1980 revision of the Abbreviated Injury Scale, as well as a glossary of commonly used medical terms and symbols, anatomical outlines and charts, and NASS coding conventions. Its twofold purpose is to standardize usage of the AIS and to improve the understanding of and appreciation for injury scaling as an integral component of motor vehicle crash investigation.
