  1. GCS, Glasgow coma scale; VSS, Vital Sign Score. Results of multivariate logistic regression of individual VSS criteria recorded in the first 15 minutes after emergency department admission, identifying independent predictors given as odds ratio, 95% confidence interval of odds ratio and significance value for hospital mortality.
