Triss unexpected survivors : a statistical phenomenon or a clinical reality ?
Data from patients treated in Pennsylvania-accredited trauma centers during 1989 were analyzed.
TRISS expected and unexpected survivors (1.6% of all survivors) differed in many ways.
Unexpected survivors were more than twice as likely to have been transferred from a nondesignated trauma center (45.8% vs. 22.8%, p<0.001).
Unexpected survivors had significantly higher frequencies of motor vehicle iniuries (56.2% vs. 38.3%, p<0.001), pedestrian injuries (9.6% vs. 5.4%, p<0.01), and gunshot wounds (7.3% vs. 4.7%, p<0.01).
