Study Title and Description
Validation of the Shock Index, Modified Shock Index, and Age Shock Index for Predicting Mortality of Geriatric Trauma Patients in Emergency Departments.
Key Questions Addressed
|1||Key Question 1: For patients with known or suspected trauma who are treated out-of-hospital by EMS personnel, what is the predictive utility of measures of circulatory compromise or derivative measures (e.g., the shock index) for predicting serious injury requiring transport to the highest level trauma center available? 1a: How does the predictive utility of the studied measures of circulatory compromise vary across age groups (e.g., children or the elderly)? Specifically, what values for the different age ranges are supported by the evidence?|
