Abstract

Measurement of severity of injuries is by all means needed in contemporary traumatology. Objective assessment of several different injuries is helpful in different comparisons concerning different groups of trauma patients. The authors have chosen 4 number scales: Trauma Scale (TS), Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS) and APACHE (Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation) in order to assess their application in traumatological practice. Advantages and disadvantages of number scaling describing of severity of injuries in trauma patients have been discussed.
