Abstract

Trauma scoring aims for quantification and uniform reporting of trauma-related outcomes. Despite significant advances in trauma scoring, the exact time period at which relevant calculations should be made is not clear. Considering the importance of response to resuscitation, calculation of trauma scores after a period of resuscitation can allow better discrimination of patients who will survive.
