Our thoughts are with our friend & colleague Dr. Craig Spencer during this difficult time and with all patients with Ebola across the world.
Calculations must be re-checked, shouldn't be used alone for patient care, and don't substitute for professional judgment. See our full disclaimer.
Quantifies severity of trauma injuries based on GCS, blood pressure, and respiratory rate.
Note: Use the first set of data obtained on the patient.
RTS = (0.9368 * GCS Value) + (0.7326 * SBP Value) + (0.2908 * RR Value)
Calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care nor should they substitute for clinical judgement. disclaimer
