EAST November 2016 Literature Review Traumacast: AAST Severity Scoring for ACS Diseases - Podcast #71



Drs. Marie Crandall and Christian Jones join moderators Dave Morris and Matt Martin to discuss what may become a landmark paper in emergency general surgery.  Imagine if general surgery diseases could be graded by severity like traumatic injuries are with AIS/ISS.  Dr. Crandall and her co-authors have published just such a severity scoring system, which holds the promise of standardizing our nomenclature across the ACS community.  Listen as Drs. Crandall and Jones discuss the utility of this system and ways to promote its adoption.
