Associations of Abbreviated Injury Scale with chemical compounds

  • The injuries were coded according to the 1980 revision of the Abbreviated Injury Scale of the American Association for Automotive Medicine and the data subjected to statistical analysis [11].

Gene context of Abbreviated Injury Scale

  • Serious injuries (Abbreviated Injury Scale - AIS-3) accounted for 16% of the total cost to the community, but constituted only 3% of all injuries [12].
  • Patients were stratified by TBI severity using an adaptation of the Abbreviated Injury Scale for administrative data (ICD/AIS), as follows: 2 = "moderate"; 3 = "serious"; 4 = "severe"; and 5 = "critical." Patient characteristics, patterns of treatment, and outcomes and costs were examined by injury severity and mechanism of injury [13].
  • Two asymmetrical front-end damage patterns were commonly identified, and these gave the greatest rates of non-minor (Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) > or = 2) injuries in a range of Estimated Test Speeds from 35 to 52km/h which is the regime of current legislative crash tests [14].
