  1. Influence of early variables in traumatic brain injury on functional independence measure scores and rehabilitation length of stay and charges.

    Article - En anglais


    To determine the relationship between early variables (initial Glasgow Coma Scale [GCS] scores, computed tomography [CT] findings, presence of skeletal trauma, age, length of acute hospitalization) and outcome variables (Functional Independence Measure [FIM] scores, rehabilitation length of stay [LOS], rehabilitation charges) in traumatic brain injury (TBI).


    Inception cohort Setting : University tertiary care rehabilitation center.


    91 patients with TBI.


    Inpatient rehabilitation.

    Main Outcome Measures 

    FIM, rehabilitation LOS, and rehabilitation charges.


    Information readily available on rehabilitation admission, particularly the FIM motor score, may be useful in predicting discharge FIM scores as well as utilization of medical rehabilitation resources.

    Earlier transfer to rehabilitation may result in higher functional status and lower rehabilitation charges, as well as lower acute hospitalization charges.

    The presence of extremity fractures encountered during a motor vehicle crash is associated with a more favorable outcome in TBI as evidenced by higher discharge FIM cognitive scores.
