where G (Glasgow Coma Scale), S (systolic blood pressure), and R (respiratory rate) are the coded values of Revised Trauma Score variables on admission to the emergency department (Table 1), and A, B, and C are summary scores of serious injuries (AIS > 2) to various body regions or systems. The value of a component (A,

B, or C) is given by the square root of the sum of the squares of the AIS values for a patient's injuries in the component. The body regions, injury severities, and ICD-9-CM codes associated with each component are defined in IabJe.4. AGE* is assigned a value between zero and 4 (Iable..5). Iable.6 gives ASCOT logistic model coefficients based on AIS-85. ASCOT has been shown to be a better predictor of survival probability than TRISS.
