127. Head-to-head comparison of disaster triage methods in pediatric, adult, and geriatric patients (Abstract)

Head-to-head comparison of disaster triage methods in pediatric, adult, and geriatric patients A variety of methods have been proposed and used in disaster triage situations, but there is little more than expert opinion to support most of them. Anecdotal disaster experiences often report mediocre real-world triage accuracy. The study objective was to determine the accuracy of several disaster triage methods when predicting clinically important outcomes in a large cohort of trauma (...) victims.Pediatric, adult, and geriatric trauma victims from the National Trauma Data Bank were assigned triage levels, using each of 6 disaster triage methods: simple triage and rapid treatment (START), Fire Department of New York (FDNY), CareFlight, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), Sacco Score, and Unadjusted Sacco Score. Methods for approximating triage systems were vetted by subject matter experts. Triage assignments were compared against patient mortality at hospital discharge with area under the receiver operator

128. Predicting outcome after hip fracture: using a frailty index to integrate comprehensive geriatric assessment results Full Text available with Trip Pro

Predicting outcome after hip fracture: using a frailty index to integrate comprehensive geriatric assessment results hip fracture is expensive in terms of mortality, hospital length of stay (LOS) and consequences for independence. Poor outcome reflects the vulnerability of patients who typically sustain this injury, but the impact of different comorbidities and impairments is complex to understand. We consider this in a prospective cohort study designed to examine how a patients' frailty index (...) (FI) predicts outcome.consecutive patients with low trauma hip fracture were assessed, excluding only those unfit for surgery. Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) findings were used to derive a FI for each patient, which was examined alongside other assessment and outcome data from our National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) submission for these individuals.we describe 178 patients; mean age 81 years, 73.5% female. The mean FI was 0.34 (SD = 0.16), and logistic regression identified abbreviated

Advanced age affects the outcome-predictive power of RIFLE classification in geriatric patients with acute kidney injury The RIFLE (risk, injury, failure, loss, and end-stage) classification is widely used to gauge the severity of acute kidney injury, but its efficacy has not been formally tested in geriatric patients. To correct this we conducted a prospective observational study in a multicenter cohort of 3931 elderly patients (65 years of age or older) who developed acute kidney injury

Frailty screening methods for predicting outcome of a comprehensive geriatric assessment in elderly patients with cancer: a systematic review Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) is done to detect vulnerability in elderly patients with cancer so that treatment can be adjusted accordingly; however, this process is time-consuming and pre-screening is often used to identify fit patients who are able to receive standard treatment versus those in whom a full CGA should be done. We aimed (...) different frailty screening methods were assessed. The median sensitivity and specificity of each screening method for predicting frailty on CGA were as follows: Vulnerable Elders Survey-13 (VES-13), 68% and 78%; Geriatric 8 (G8), 87% and 61%; Triage Risk Screening Tool (TRST 1+; patient considered frail if one or more impairments present), 92% and 47%, Groningen Frailty Index (GFI) 57% and 86%, Fried frailty criteria 31% and 91%, Barber 59% and 79%, and abbreviated CGA (aCGA) 51% and 97%.

Among academic trauma surgeons, a substantial difference of opinion seems to exist on whether falls from standing or hip fractures qualify as a “geriatric trauma” worthy of admission to a dedicated trauma service. This ambivalence seems to extend into the community where there exists substantial evidence that elderly patients are less likely to be referred to trauma centers—perhaps because of conflicting experimental evidence on the survival of the elderly injured
