Incidence and predictors of mortality among adult trauma patients admitted to the intensive care units of comprehensive specialized hospitals in Northwest Ethiopia

Abstract: Background Trauma is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among adult population in the world. Despite many improvements in technology and care, mortality among trauma patients in the intensive care unit is still high particularly in Ethiopia. However, there is limited evidence on the incidence and predictors of mortality among trauma patients in Ethiopia. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the incidence and predictors of mortality among adult trauma patients admitted to intensive ca… Show more

Numerous studies have shown that lower body temperature at admission is associated with increased in-hospital mortality in critically ill trauma patients [11][12][13]. In this study, the body temperature of patients in the nonsurvival group was lower than that in the survival group.…”
