These prognostic models may be used as an aid to estimate mortality at 14 days and death and severe disability at six months in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The predictions are based on the average outcome in adult patients with Glasgow coma score (GCS) of 14 or less, within 8 hours of injury, and can only support - not replace - clinical judgment. Although individual names of countries can be selected in the models, the estimates are based on two alternative sets of models (high income countries or low & middle income countries).
