Download (277.97 kB)
Clinical decision rules for minor head injury patients incorporate a number of individual characteristics grouped together to provide a tool for identifying those at risk of intracranial injury. We performed a systematic review of the individual characteristics that contribute to clinical decision making and calculated likelihood ratios of significance for each. These data were then compared with current clinical decision rules.
