  1. GCS, Glasgow Coma Scale; HR; heart rate; ISS, Injury Severity Score; MT, massive transfusion; non-MT, non-massive transfusion; RBC, red blood cell concentrate; n, number of patients; ns, not significant; RSI, rapid sequence intubation; SBP, systolic blood pressure. Data are presented as median and interquartile range or n (%). Groups were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis test.
