Abstract:

Objective: To determine early severity in patients with surgical trauma of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Methods: Cross-sectional study at the Hospital José Carrasco Arteaga Cuenca-Ecuador (2018- 2020). Seventy-one patients met the inclusion criteria. We studied demographic variables, vital signs and blood tests. The dependent variable was admission to the ICU. All values were taken at patient admission, frequencies, percentages, measures of central tendency, or (95% CI) were performed. Results: Male patients represented 83.1%; the mean age was 31 years, the mean time to hospital was 36 min. 81.7% presented blunt trauma and the main cause was traffic accidents (57.7%). Furthermore, 38% of patients required a transfusion, the main cause being traffic accidents (57.7%). 38% required a blood transfusion. The risk factors that were significant in predicting severity were: HR greater than 100, MAP less than 70, SBP less than 90, Excess base greater than -6, pH less than 7.25, PT greater than 14.5, bicarbonate less than 17.5. Mortality was 5.6%. Conclusion: early predictors of severity in surgical trauma of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis will allow taking measures upon admission of a traumatized patient, with simple and accessible parameters.
