Abstract

Head trauma is a problem of neurological disorder in the brain and has a high mortality rate. Head trauma incidence of America reached 500,000 cases, which are divided into 80% of mild head trauma, 10% of moderate trauma, and 10% of severe trauma. There for an accurate initial assessment method of prognosis of head trauma such as Revised Trauma Score is needed to predict the possibility of patient’s mortality. Revised Trauma Score (RTS) is an assessment method that is accurate for predicting the level of brain damage. This study was Cohort design with accidental technique 46 people. The results of statistical test of Man-Whitney showed that there was a significant correlation between RTS scores output and head trauma mortality (p <005). Quick and precise management are needed to decrease brain damage.
