Clinical tool developed to identify children with TBI at low-risk for ICU-level care

June 29, 2017

Investigators developed a clinical tool for determining which pediatric patients with mild traumatic brain injury were at low-risk for needing ICU-level intervention.

Researchers retrospectively reviewed 284 patients aged 16 years or younger with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). They assessed covariates that included age, Glasgow Coma Scale score, pupillary response, CT characteristics and the Injury Severity Score. They determined significant predictors for model inclusion with stepwise logistic regression. They used binary recursive partitioning to derive the clinical decision rule.
