Abstract

Polytrauma patients are at high risk to die due to acute physiological deterioration after a high injury load within the first hours. Trauma scores such as ISS, NISS and APACHE II and laboratory parameters were collected at admission. The aim of this study was to evaluate the independent predictors of early death of the polytrauma patient.
