- •Benchmarking trauma outcomes supports quality improvement. The standard tool, the Injury Severity Score (ISS), is imperfect in predicting pediatric mortality.
- •The Pediatric Resuscitation and Trauma Outcome Score (PRESTO) has been validated in low-and-middle-income countries. PRESTO performs equally well to ISS in a high-income context but is simpler to derive.
