The revised trauma score is made up of a combination of results from three categories; Glasgow Coma Scale, Systolic blood pressure, and respiratory rate.
The sum of these three products is the revised trauma score (RTS).
Patients were eligible for inclusion based on mechanism of injury and/or Revised Trauma Score (RTS).
The mean revised trauma score of the injured at the time of Emergency Room (ER) presentation was 7.43 +- 0.4 (range 3.47-7.84).
Conclusions: Emergency room parameters that significantly predicted mortality and the need for damage control surgery were: pH, base deficit, lactate and Revised Trauma Score (RTS).
Examples of such triage scoring tools include the Pre hospital Index, CRAMS score, Revised Trauma Score, START and MGAP (Table-2).
(8) All charts were reviewed and the data collected included age, sex, mechanism of injury, the Revised Trauma Score (RTS), the Injury Severity Score (ISS), and the Penetrating Abdominal Trauma Index (PATI).
For assessment of injury severity, information was gathered from treating physicians, and hospital records and Injury severity scores (ISS) and Revised Trauma Scores (RTS) were calculated for each victim.
