Abstract

Introduction: In addition to clinical evaluation and radiological studies, a number of factors seem to be able to be used independently in determining the prognosis and fate of trauma patients. Among these factors, metabolic acidosis and CRP seem to be helpful in the first two days of admission, and considering the large number of trauma patients referred to Imam Khomeini Hospital and the measurability of these factors in these patients, it seems that the effect is evaluated. And the accuracy of measuring these factors in the care and treatment of these patients is valuable.

Material and Methods: During this study, demographic characteristics (age, sex), underlying diseases, organ failure, duration of mechanical ventilation, duration of hospitalization in the intensive care unit and hospital, frequency of mortality, CRP and trauma score were included in the checklist prepared by Was realized and statistically examined after completion.

Results: In this study, we also investigated the predictive value of CRP in patients with blunt trauma admitted to the intensive care unit. The results showed that CRP levels in the age group over 90 years are significantly different from other age groups and the mean CRP level in this age group is higher than other age groups.

Conclusion: In this study, there was a significant difference between the mean duration of mechanical ventilation, length of hospital stay, patient outcome and mean trauma score in patients with high CRP levels.
