Advancing age is associated with increased mortality despite smaller burn size. Chronic conditions are common in the elderly with resulting polypharmacy. The Comorbidity-Polypharmacy Score (CPS) facilitates quantitative assessment of the severity of comorbid conditions, or physiologic age. Burn injury in older patients is associated with increasing morbidity and mortality and the CPS may be predictive of outcomes such as mortality, ICU and hospital LOS, complications, and final hospital… Expand
Comorbidity-Polypharmacy Score Predicts Readmissions and in- Hospital Mortality: A Six-Hospital Health Network Experience
TLDR
CPS appears to provide a reasonable platform for patient risk stratification based on easily obtainable clinical data inputs and is independently associated with readmissions and mortality across all age groups. 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 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
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
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
The prevalence of comorbidities among acute burn patients
TLDR
The prevalence ofComorbidities in burn patients was 18.5% and among older burn patients rose to 57%. Expand
Clinico- Pharmacologic Score Predicting Outcomes in Hospital Admitted Patients: Study from a Tertiary Centre
Objectives: To determine the association between clinicopharmacologic score (CPS) and clinical outcomes in patients admitted in critical care (≥45 y), focusing on outcome prognostication. Methods: AExpand
Age and preexisting conditions as risk factors for severe adverse events and failure to rescue after injury.
TLDR
Trauma patients with renal disease are mostly at increased risk for both SAE and FTR, but other PECs associated with SAE are not necessarily those associated with FTR. Expand
The contribution of frailty, cognition, activity of daily life and comorbidities on outcome in acutely admitted patients over 80 years in European ICUs: the VIP2 study
TLDR
It is confirmed that frailty assessment using the CFS is able to predict short-term mortality in elderly patients admitted to ICU, and should be routinely collected for all elderly ICU patients in particular in connection to advance care plans. Expand
Burns in the elderly: a nationwide study on management and clinical outcomes
TLDR
Differences in aetiology, comorbidity, physiology and the management prior to admission possibly affect the initial surgical management and result in significantly worse outcomes in elderly burn patients. 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
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
Influence of Comorbidities and Age on Outcome Following Burn Injury in Older Adults
TLDR
It is demonstrated that patient age—independent of baseline medical comorbidities—and TBSA burn are the most significant factors impacting in-hospital mortality risk following burn injury. Expand
The Effects of Preexisting Medical Comorbidities on Mortality and Length of Hospital Stay in Acute Burn Injury: Evidence From a National Sample of 31,338 Adult Patients
TLDR
A number of preexisting medical conditions influence outcomes in acute burn injury, and patients with preburn HIV/AIDS, metastatic cancer, liver disease, and renal disease have particularly poor prognoses. Expand
The continuing challenge of burn care in the elderly.
TLDR
Aggressive care for most elderly patients with burn injuries appears justified by the improved outcomes demonstrated, and hospital charges increased fourfold and were twice as great in nonsurvivors during this period. Expand
Epidemiology and Outcomes of Older Adults With Burn Injury: An Analysis of the National Burn Repository

TLDR
This analysis demonstrates age-dependent differences in resource utilization and mortality risk within the older burn population and highlights the need for a national research agenda focused on management practices and outcomes in older adult with burns. Expand
Predicting survival in an elderly burn patient population.
TLDR
Improved survival in patients aged 60-74 yr as compared to 1965-1971 national burn survival data is demonstrated and the high mortality associated with burn injuries in the elderly and the superior ability of the Baux score (age + percent burn) in predicting outcome in this population are reinforced.

The impact of antiplatelet therapy on pelvic fracture outcomes
TLDR
Results of this study support the contention that preinjury use of APA does not independently affect morbidity or mortality in trauma patients with Pfx and demonstrate that among different APA, only prein injury ASA was associated with early PRBC transfusions. Expand

TLDR
This work reinforces the importance of routine medication reviews, especially in residents exposed to polypharmacy regimens that include antiarrhythmics or antiparkinson drugs, in order to reduce the risk of fall-related injuries during nursing home stays. Expand

TLDR
The epidemiology and outcome of 94 elderly burn patients of age 60 years or older treated in a local burn centre over a period of 6 years yielded a mortality rate of 7.4%. Expand
