dc.description.abstract<h4>Background</h4>Factors predictive of death at South Australian major trauma services were investigated among 8,654 patients who had experienced severe trauma from 1997 to 2000.<h4>Method</h4>Univariate and multivariate analyses of age, sex, injury severity, presence of comorbid conditions, and calendar year of presentation were performed.<h4>Results</h4>Multiple logistic regression indicated that factors predictive of death were older age; higher injury severity as indicated by the New Injury Severity Score and the Revised Trauma Score; and accompanying chronic liver disease, ischemic heart disease, and chronic renal failure. A decrease in risk of death by calendar year was statistically significant (p = 0.001). Using 1997 as the reference, the relative odds of death were 0.86 (95% confidence limits) (0.53, 1.39) for 1998, 0.60 (0.36, 0.99) for 1999, and 0.45 (0.27, 0.76) for 2000.<h4>Conclusion</h4>Results show a decrease in risk of death of patients attending South Australian major trauma services, from injuries of equivalent severity, during the first 4 years of operation of the State Trauma System.-
