Zusammenfassung

Die AIS (Abbreviated Injury Scale) ist von der AAAM (Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine) 2008 mit einem Update herausgegeben worden. Sie ist eines der universellen Scoringwerkzeuge im unfallchirurgischen Fachgebiet mit Einsatzpotenzial in Klinik und Forschung. Die Ingenieurswissenschaften nutzen sie in der Fahrzeugtechnik zur Bewertung der Fahrzeugsicherheit. Damit kann die AIS als internationale, interdisziplinäre und universelle Klassifikation der Verletzungsschwere angesehen werden. Dieser Beitrag liefert einen Überblick zur Historie, Anwendungsmöglichkeit und verbesserten Kodiermöglichkeiten durch die neu erschienene Version. Dabei werden aber auch Probleme aufgezeigt.

The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS)

Options and problems in application

Abstract

The new AIS (Abbreviated Injury Scale) was released with an update by the AAAM (Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine) in 2008. It is a universal scoring system in the field of trauma applicable in clinic and research. In engineering it is used as a classification system for vehicle safety. The AIS can therefore be considered as an international, interdisciplinary and universal code of injury severity. This review focuses on a historical overview, potential applications and new coding options in the current version and also outlines the associated problems.
