Abstract

The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), Injury Severity Scale and TRISS methodology comprise a mathematically sound system for the analysis of injuries and injured patients. This system is of value for research and audit and has potential applications in forensic medicine, such as its use as a tool to assist the classification and analysis of injuries sustained by those injured in mass disasters.
