  1. Major trauma in Australia : a regional analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    This study was undertaken to evaluate the frequency, distribution, cause, pattern, and outcome of patients suffering from major trauma in the State of Victoria over a 1-year period.

    No previous study in Australia has attempted a comprehensive regional analysis of major trauma.

    All major trauma admissions resulting from blunt, penetrating, and burns injury were identified, and data collected from emergency departments and intensive care log books at 25 major metropolitan and rural hospitals from the January 3,1992 to February 28,1993 by onsite data collectors.

    The total number of patients admitted into the study was 2,944.

    There were 1,076 major trauma cases with an Injury Severity Score greater than 15 in a population of 4.2 million people.

    The type of injury was predominantly blunt (87.5%), with only a small percentage of penetrating injuries (6.4%) and burns (6%). Major trauma in pediatric cases is less common (132 cases).

    The most common causes of injury were road transport (56%) and falls (22%). The overall outcome of the group was favorable when compared with the Major Trauma Outcome Study group (Z=1.4, M=0.93, W=0.52).

    There was an unexpectedly low number of patients suffering from major trauma.

    Outcome using Trauma and Injury Severity Score methodology was favorable when compared with North America.
