dc.description.abstractIn this pilot study, 28 subjects ages 0 to 6 years who had sustained head injuries were assessed as to their functional status at one and six months post hospital discharge. The functional assessments used were the Rand Child Health Scale, the Battelle Developmental Inventory Screening Test, the Battelle Developmental Inventory Motor Domain, and the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory. Correlations between these functional measures and trauma scores reported through the National Pediatric Trauma Registry (Glasgow Coma Scale; Injury Severity Score, and Pediatric Trauma Score) were calculated to determine the predictive capacity of the trauma scores in determining functional outcome. The trauma scores were not found to be reliable predictors of functional outcome in these young children.en_US
