Individual treatment of injured persons is the basis of our trauma and health-care systems. Epidemiological research analyses the impact of injury to the health and mortality of the general population. To prevent and effectively treat patients exposed to trauma, we need knowledge of the epidemiology. Basic health indicators are as crucial for understanding the health situation as are the Glasgow Coma Scale score (GCS) and pupil reaction of a braininjured patient.
