Study Title and Description

Systolic blood pressure criteria in the National Trauma Triage Protocol for geriatric trauma: 110 is the new 90.



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?

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?
