Abstract

Introduction: Overall, trauma is the third leading cause of mortality in Brazil accounting for 13.3% of all causes of death and it is the main cause of mortality in the first half of life. Besides the preventive measures necessary to try to change this scenario, the creation of integrated trauma centers and a systematization of care, with or without the help of technology, are promising in the treatment of victims of polytrauma. Objective: Demonstrate a survey of trauma cases treated at a teaching hospital in the city of São Paulo and correlate factors with predictors of hospitalization and mortality. Methodology: Analysis of trauma patients admitted to Santa Marcelina Hospital in Itaquera, São Paulo, from March to October 2018. Data on the occurrence of trauma by age and sex, affected body part, origin of patients, means to reach the university hospital, accommodation, mortality and length of hospitalization were collected. Results: A total of 1,315 patients, victims of trauma, were admitted to Santa Marcelina Hospital in Itaquera, São Paulo, 69.2% male and 13.2% over 65-years old. Most had access to such hospital due to primary health care. The analysis of the predictors of mortality in this survey were -age over 65-years (p<0.001), need for ICU accommodation (p<0.001), admission to the hospital through rescue units (SAMU or COBOM) (p<0.001) and traumatic brain injury (p<0.001). Conclusion: Elderly people with traumatic brain injury and need for ICU accommodation correlate with higher mortality rates and length of hospitalization.
