To determine the association between comorbidity–polypharmacy score (CPS) and clinical outcomes in a large sample of older trauma patients, focusing on outcome prognostication. 
Comorbidity–Polypharmacy Score as Predictor of Outcomes in Older Trauma Patients: A Retrospective Validation Study
TLDR
This study confirms that CPS is an independent predictor of all-cause morbidity and mortality in older trauma patients, however, CPS was not independently associated with need for discharge to a facility. Expand
Comorbidity-polypharmacy score predicts readmission in older trauma patients.
TLDR
Frailty defined by CPS was a significantly stronger predictor of readmission than was patient age, and early recognition of elevated CPS may improve discharge planning and help guide interventions to decrease readmission rates in older trauma patients. Expand
Comorbidity polypharmacy score and its clinical utility: A pragmatic practitioner's perspective
TLDR
The goal of this article was to review and refine the rationale for CPS and to provide an evidence-based outline of its potential clinical applications. Expand
Comparison of two comorbidity scoring systems for older adults with traumatic injuries.
TLDR
The addition of a comorbidity score improves multivariate models predicting long-term mortality in older trauma patients and there was no advantage to using CPS instead of Charlson score, and each was an independent predictor of fatal outcomes. Expand
Comorbidity-Polypharmacy Score Predicts In-Hospital Complications and the Need for Discharge to Extended Care Facility in Older Burn Patients
TLDR
While increasing CPS was associated with lower TBSA, mortality remained unchanged and CPS is an independent predictor of in-hospital complications and need for transfer to extended care facilities in older burn patients, which can be determined at the stage of admission to help direct patient management. Expand
Mortality is predicted by Comorbidity Polypharmacy score but not Charlson Comorbidity Index in geriatric trauma patients.
TLDR
Increased CCI and CPS were associated with increased HLOS, and in patients over 65, increased CPS was associated with decreased mortality, which could be due to return toward physiologic normalcy in treated patients not seen in their peers with undiagnosed or untreated comorbidities. Expand
Frailty and survival in elderly intensive care patients in Norway
TLDR
Factors strongly associated with 30-day mortality were increasing SOFA score and increasing frailty (CFS), and other geriatric scores had no significant association with survival in multivariate analyzes. Expand
The comorbidity-polypharmacy score is an objective and practical predictor of outcomes and mortality after vascular surgery.
TLDR
CPPS is a simple and pragmatic clinical tool for quantifying risk of postoperative outcomes and mortality after common vascular surgery procedures and should be validated in enhancing existing predictors of patient outcomes and in serving as an adjunctive tool for determining resource allocation and discharge planning in vascular surgery patients. Expand
Challenges in the Elderly
TLDR
Despite the rapid increase in the number of geriatric TBIs, strong evidence about treatment guidelines is severely lacking, and individual decisions become possibly even more pronounced in this age group, requiring careful consideration of multiple issues. Expand

Comorbidity-polypharmacy score: a novel adjunct in post-emergency department trauma triage.
TLDR
It is suggested that comorbidity-polypharmacy score (CPS) may be a promising adjunct in identifying older trauma patients who are more likely to be undertriaged, and when considering that injury severity in the UT group was similar to that in the other groups. Expand
Co-morbid factors in trauma patients.
  • T. Wardle
  • Medicine
  • British medical bulletin
  • 1999
TLDR
The presence of co-morbid or pre-existing factors has been shown to increase mortality and morbidity after trauma and the evidence for these associations is reviewed. Expand
Pre-injury polypharmacy as a predictor of outcomes in trauma patients
TLDR
Over 40% of trauma patients 45 years and older were receiving 5 or more medications at the time of their injury and are at increased risk for complications, lower functional outcomes, and longer hospital and intensive care stays. Expand
Drugs and Falls in Older People: A Systematic Review and Meta‐analysis: II. Cardiac and Analgesic Drugs
TLDR
The evidence linking specific classes of cardiac and analgesic drugs to falls in older people is evaluated critically to evaluate critically the evidence linking them to falls. Expand
Preexisting conditions and mortality in older trauma patients.
TLDR
Older trauma patients with CMCs who present with minor injuries should be considered to have an increased risk of death when compared with their nonchronically ill counterparts. Expand
[Trauma in the elderly].
TLDR
Except for hip fractures and simple fractures of extremities, age more then 65 should be a criteria for admitting the patient in a trauma center and activating the trauma team. Expand
Drugs and Falls in Older People: A Systematic Review and Meta‐analysis: I. Psychotropic Drugs
TLDR
To evaluate critically the evidence linking psychotropic drugs with falls in older people, a large number of studies have found no link between these drugs and falls in adults over the age of 65. Expand
Mortality factors in geriatric blunt trauma patients.
TLDR
Admission variables in geriatric trauma patients can be used to predict outcome and may also be useful in making decisions about triage, quality assurance, and use of intensive care unit beds. Expand
Pre-existing disease in trauma patients: a predictor of fate independent of age and injury severity score.
TLDR
Improvement in trauma management requires a better understanding of the effect of a patient's preinjury health status on outcome, and changes in prehospital triage criteria and outcome scoring are needed. Expand
Differences in mortality between elderly and younger adult trauma patients: geriatric status increases risk of delayed death.
TLDR
Predictive models of survival can be developed, taking into account preexisting disease and complications as well as admission parameters such as age, ISS, and RTS, and specific risk of mortality quantitated. Expand
