Background: The aim of the present study was to assess potential long‐term reduction in health‐related quality of life (HRQOL) in adult trauma patients 2–7 years after discharge from an intensive care unit (ICU), and to study possible determinants of the HRQOL reduction. 
Health-related quality of life of trauma patients after intensive care: a 2-year follow-up study
TLDR
TheHRQOL of a group of Chinese trauma patients after ICU treatment improved from 1 to 2 years after discharge, and the HRQOL improved in one physical health domain and three mental health domains. Expand
Predicting health status in the first year after trauma
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify factors associated with health status in the first year following trauma and develop prediction models based on a defined trauma population. Expand
Health related quality of life in adult former intensive care unit patients
TLDR
A large number of patients treated in an intensive care unit (ICU) are seriously ill, have a high co‐morbidity, morbidity and mortality and consume significant hospital resources. Expand
Health related quality of life in trauma patients. Data from a one-year follow up study compared with the general population
TLDR
Better HRQOL at 12 months was predicted mainly by optimism, low score for depression and PTS symptoms at baseline, which improved significantly from the 3 to the 12 months follow up in the trauma patients. Expand
Long-term changes of patient-reported quality of life after major trauma: The importance of the time elapsed after injury.
TLDR
There is an independent, U-shaped association between the frequency of extreme values of HRQOL and the time elapsed after injury, which may be sensitive to increasing rates of attrition since patients with a good outcome are less likely to respond to questionnaires. Expand
Survival and health related quality of life after severe trauma - a 15 years follow up study.
TLDR
EQ-5D is significantly reduced 15 years after severe trauma and ISS was associated with low HRQoL, and ISS≥16 predicts poorer HRZoL. Expand
Physical effects of trauma and the psychological consequences of preexisting diseases account for a significant portion of the health-related quality of life patterns of former trauma patients
TLDR
The trauma population seems to have a trauma-specific HRQoL outcome pattern, and there is a large and significant decrease in the physical dimensions of the SF-36, which is due to musculoskeletal effects and pain secondary to the trauma. Expand
Health-related quality of life 2 years to 7 years after burn injury.
TLDR
HRQoL after burn is conveniently screened by EQ VAS and can be predicted in part by information available before or at 12 months, and mainly reflected in the EQ dimensions Pain/Discomfort and Usual activities. Expand
Health related quality of life of survivors of trauma six months after discharge
TLDR
Trauma survivors in Johannesburg experience limitations in specific emotional and physical domains of HRQOL at six months after discharge, associated with the level of self-rated health as well as limitations in general health and physical function. Expand
Quality of life after mild to moderate trauma.
TLDR
After a mild trauma, the authors evidenced a relevant reduction in HRQOL; an advanced age and a higher degree of organ dysfunction were independently associated withHRQOL deterioration. Expand

Trauma patients in the intensive care unit: short‐ and long‐term survival and predictors of 30‐day mortality
Background:  The aims of this cohort study were to assess the survival of trauma patients treated in a general intensive care unit (ICU) and to evaluate the simplified acute physiology score (SAPS)Expand
Analysis of quality of life in polytraumatized patients two years after discharge from an intensive care unit.
TLDR
Polytraumatized patients admitted into ICU showed a worsening of their quality of life 1 and 2 years after ICU discharge, with an improvement between 1 and2 years, and a multivariate study showed thatquality of life after 2 years is influenced by age, severity of injury, and previous quality ofLife. Expand
Long-term outcome and quality of life of patients treated in surgical intensive care: a comparison between sepsis and trauma
TLDR
Patients with sepsis treated in a surgical ICU have higher short-term and long-term mortality than do trauma patients, and quality of life is reduced to the same level in both groups. Expand
Using the EuroQol-5D to measure changes in quality of life 12 months after discharge from an intensive care unit
TLDR
The degree and direction of change in ICU patients' HRQOL 1 year after discharge depends considerably on diagnostic category, and proxy responses can be reliably used with the EQ-5D when measuring change inHRQOL. Expand
Health-Related Quality of Life and Disability in Survivors of Multiple Trauma One Year After Intensive Care Unit Discharge
TLDR
The majority of survivors of major trauma exhibit considerable levels of disability and impairment in health-related quality of life, and this information may help in organizing long-term rehabilitation of multiple-trauma patients. Expand
Quality of life after multiple trauma requiring intensive care
TLDR
After multiple trauma, patients reported significant decreases in their quality of life in relation to their overall health, happiness, ability to think and to pursue leisure activities, their income and their employment. Expand
Changes in quality of life after medical intensive care
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed that preadmission QOL, age, and severity of illness were most strongly associated with follow-up QOL and six months after admission to a medical ICU most survivors had regained their pread admission health-related QOL. Expand
Outcome and quality of life 5 years after major trauma.
TLDR
Adequate information, sufficient pain management and follow-up by trauma specialist teams are needed to identify patients in need of additional help and support after injury. Expand
Prevalence and determinants of disabilities and return to work after major trauma.
TLDR
Empiric quantitative data, as presented in this study, enable us to estimate the burden of injury and to evaluate the quality of trauma care programs. Expand
Quality of life after intensive care – evaluation with EQ-5D questionnaire
TLDR
Intensive care unit variables and patient's background data may be significant determinants of health-related quality of life in adult patients discharged from an intensive care unit, but when adjusted for background data, most ICU variables are no longer associated with EQ-5D. Expand
