American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. Annual session. New Orleans LA USA, 1993/09/23.
Medical and demographic data for trauma patients (n=7120) admitted to 12 trauma centers in 1 year were reviewed.
Data from New York State on all discharges for the same year (n=2,535,501) were obtained and analyzed.
Patients were identified as trauma patients based on NYC EMS trauma center advisory committee criteria translated into ICD-9-CM codes, and a computer-based algorithm was developed that identified 43,219 trauma patients.
A standard resource cost (SRC) was also developed to compare relative cost among trauma and non-trauma patients in the same diagnosis-related groups (DRGs).
The mean age of the 43,219 trauma patients was 43.1 years, 61.8% were male, the mean LOS was 13.4 days, the mean ISS was 10.4, and 61% were discharged from community hospitals.
