MEASURES OF SEVERITY OF INJURY

Various scales of estimating the severity of injury are discussed. The injuries and outcome of 1333 road accident patients coming to the Birmingham Accident Hospital are re-analyzed in order to evaluate the injury severity score (I.S.S.) ratings proposed by Baker et al in comparison with the probit analysis. The analysis confirms that the I.S.S. ratings correspond well to mortality forgiven ages. A number of improvements for I.S.S. are mentioned. /TRRL/
