Washington: Doctors can now easily identify trauma patients who are at a greatest risk of death using a simple, inexpensive blood test, according to researchers at Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City.The Intermountain Medical Center research study of more than 9,500 patients discovered that some trauma patients are up to 58 times more likely to die than others, regardless of the severity of their original injuries.The study findings provide important insight into the long-term prognosis of trauma patients, something not previously well understood, according to the researchers."The results were very surprising," said Sarah Majercik, MD, an Intermountain Medical Center surgeon and trauma researcher, whose team discovered that a tool developed at Intermountain Medical Center, called the Intermountain Risk Score, can predict mortality among trauma patients.
