PMID:  8411276     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: Pre-existing organ dysfunction has a profound effect on patient outcome even after controlling for age, anatomic and physiologic severity, and mechanism of injury. But, because of their relatively low incidence in this sample, PICs did not strongly influence institutional outcome performance as measured by z and W values.
