COMPARATIVE MORBIDITY OF VEHICULAR INJURIES IN HEAD AND NON-HEAD INJURED PATIENTS

This scientific poster presentation presents an analysis of the completed Major Trauma Outcome Study (MTOS) dataset to compare the morbidity of patients with head injuries (HI) with that of patients with no head injury (NHI). Findings suggest that surviving HI patients were more impaired than the NHI group at hospital discharge. Previous analysis of this data set showed that head injuries remain the most important single injury contributing to traumatic mortality. This presentation documents that this is also true for the morbidity of survivors. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 873507.
