ABBREVIATED INJURY SCALING OF HEAD INJURY AS A PROGNOSTIC TOOL FOR FUNCTIONAL OUTCOME

The use of Abbreviated Injury Scaling for the head region (HAIS) was evaluated as a prognostic index of functional outcome in 503 consecutive patients with severe injury to the brain who survived initial resuscitation. Although a strong statistical relationship between HAIS and outcome as meaasured by the Glasgow Outcome scale was demonstrated, its clinical usefulness is limited. HAIS may be most useful as a classifier for comparative studies of populations and for evaluation of therapeutic modalities.
