Title: Predictive value of prognostic factors at multiple trauma patients in intensive care admission
Author: B. Atik, G. Kilinc, V. Yarar

Abstract: PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the relationship between trauma patients’ mortality and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) at intensive care units admission.
METHODS: We examined 107 ICU trauma patients. Patients were divided into two groups as those who survived (Grup I) and deceased (Grup II). Patients’ age, NLR, mean platelet volume (MPV), lactate value, length of stay in the intensive care unit, acute physiology and chronic health evaluation 2 (APACHE II) scores were examined. The effects of these factors on mortality were examined.
RESULTS: 83 (77.58 %) patients were male, 24 (22.42 %) patients were female. The patients’ mean age was 46.89 ± 19.06 years. The mean value of the lactate level was 3.25 ± 2.92, the mean value of MPV was 10.34 ± 1.02, the average value of NLR was 8.23 ± 8.11, the average score of APACHE II was 22.8 ± 8.75, and the average length of stay in the ICU was 11.33 ± 22.98 days. The relationship with mortality was evaluated between the groups, there was a statistically significant difference in APACHE II scores. There was no statistically significant difference between other variables.
CONCLUSIONS: NRL, MPV, lactate levels were not suitable for the evaluation of trauma patients as an early prognostic factor like APACHE II during admission to ICU (Tab. 2, Fig. 1, Ref. 23).
