Abstract

The choice of disease-specific versus generic scales is common to many fields of medicine. In the area of traumatic brain injury, evidence is coming forward that disease-specific prognostic models and disease-specific scoring systems are preferable in the intensive care setting. In monitoring prognosis, the use of a calibration belt in validation studies potentially provides accurate and intuitively attractive insight into performance. This approach deserves further empirical evaluation of its added value as well as its limitations.
