    Additional information

    The study group included 2,128 motor vehicle occupants, pedestrians, and other road users whose injuries resulted in hospitalization or caused death. All such patients at eight Baltimore hospitals during the 2-year period (1968-1969) were included. The eight hospitals were selected on the basis of having record systems that made it feasible to identify patients admitted because of vehicle related injuries.
    The article does not discriminate between sex, therefore all participants are classed as being male in this model.

    A higher Injury Severity Score correlates with higher mortality, morbidity and hospitalization time after trauma.
