    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association. New Orleans, LA, USA, 1998/05/03.


    To develop and pilot test a telephone-based survey instrument that enables parents to identify and characterize the body region and severity of childhood injuries using the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) scoring system.


    A prospective cross-sectional survey.


    The emergency department of an urban, tertiary care, pediatric trauma center.

    The survey, known as the Injury Severity Assessment Survey/Parent Report, was developed via a systematic review of the AIS 1990 manual.

    Answers to questions were developed in a way that enabled automated coding of responses into AIS scores or ranges of scores.

    The sensitivity of the survey (its ability to detect injuries scoring 2 or more on the AIS that were documented in the medical record) varied somewhat by the body region of injury, ranging from 88% for head, face, neck, and spine injuries to 95% for extremity injuries.

    Intermediate sensitivity (92%) was noted for the detection of significant chest and abdomen injuries. (...)
