Jon Mark Hirshon, MD, MPH, FACEP, FAAEM, FACPM, is among the authors of the article, “Correlation Between the Revised Trauma Score and Injury Severity Score: Implications for Prehospital Trauma Triage” (abstract available), published in Prehospital Emergency Care. The objectives of their study were to:

  • Assess the correlation of the physiologically based Revised Trauma Score (RTS) and MGAP score (mechanism of injury, Glasgow Coma Scale, age, blood pressure) with the anatomically based Injury Severity Score
  • Compare the accuracy of the MGAP score and the RTS for the prediction of in-hospital mortality for trauma patients
