  • G60 trauma patients or elderly trauma patient in general have worse outcomes compared to younger patients with the same type and severity of injury.
  • G60 patients also experience more complications from their injuries due to pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, renal, cardiovascular and pulmonary disease.
  • Commonly prescribed or over-the-counter medications can mask the vital sign abnormalities or worsen injuries which are normally seen in trauma patients.
