Pre-existing disease in trauma patients: a predictor of fate independent of age and injury severity score.
IED = improvised explosive device, ISS = Injury Severity Score, PTSD = posttraumatic stress disorder, SD = standard deviation, TBI = traumatic brain injury.

For the test and post-test, injuries with a higher injury severity score were more often coded incorrectly (p = .
Balogh ZJ, Varga E, Tomka J, Suveges G, Toth L, Simonka JA: The new injury severity score is a better predictor of extended hospitalization and intensive care unit admission than the injury severity score in patients with multiple orthopaedic injuries.
Further, the two groups did not differ in terms of injury severity score, nor were there significant differences with respect to pulmonary contusions, pneumothorax, haemothorax, and presence of chest tubes.
There were no group differences in age, gender, APACHE II, GCS, Injury Severity Score or isolated TBI.
Also, the study determined risk factors for the development of this condition which include an age of less than 30 years, the presence and severity of traumatic brain injury, the presence of an amputation, multiple injuries to the extremities and a high Injury Severity Score.

The review showed a significantly higher level of injuries in the patients struck by cars as evidenced by their Injury Severity Score (ISS), a numerical system used to stratify injury severity in patients.
The overall mean Injury Severity Score (ISS) was 29 (of a possible 50) (Arch.
