Study Title and Description

Comparison of the trauma and injury severity score and modified early warning score with rapid lactate level (the ViEWS-L score) in blunt trauma patients.



Key Questions Addressed
3 Key Question 3: For patients with known or suspected trauma who are treated out-of-hospital by EMS personnel, what is the evidence that scales combining (a) measures of respiratory and circulatory compromise or (b) measures of respiratory and/or circulatory compromise together with measurement of altered levels of consciousness (as defined by Glasgow Coma Scale or its components) can predict the need for transport to a trauma center? 3a. How does the predictive utility of combinations of measures vary across age groups (e.g., children or the elderly)? Specifically, what values for the different age ranges are supported by the evidence?
