Trauma Score - Injury Severity Score : TRISS

TRISS determines the probability of survival (Ps) of a patient from the ISS and RTS using the following formulae:

Ps
Where 'b' is calculated from:

Bs
The coefficients b0 - b3 are derived from multiple regression analysis of the Major Trauma Outcome Study (MTOS) database. AgeIndex is 0 if the patient is below 54 years of age or 1 if 55 years and over. b0 to b3 are coefficients which are different for blunt and penetrating trauma. If the patient is less than 15, the blunt coefficients are used regardless of mechanism.

  Blunt Penetrating
b0 -0.4499 -2.5355
b1 0.8085 0.9934
b2 -0.0835 -0.0651
b3 -1.7430 -1.1360

The TRISS calculator determines the probability of survival from the ISS, RTS and patient's age. ISS and RTS scores can be inputted independently or calculated from their base parameters.
