SPECIAL ISSUE: AAAM Engaged Driving Symposium

AAAM, with the sponsorship by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, assembled a group of leading researchers to bring together the state-of-the-science on distracted driving. The Engaged Driving Symposium held March 31, 2014 provides an overview of the panel's findings and its highest priorities for further exploration. Our special issue of AAAM's journal, The Annals of Advances in Automotive Medicine is now available.

Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) 2005 – Update 2008
Dictionary and CD
Also available
en Español and French (book only)

AAAM and the IISC are proud to announce the release of AIS 2005 © - Update 2008. Since the AIS 2005 was implemented internationally over the last three years several issues have been brought to the International Injury Scaling Committee’s attention. In response, new rules and guidelines have been included in the Update 2008 version to clarify usage and assure appropriate assignment of AIS codes. Several new codes have been added and minor errors have been corrected. Additionally, the Functional Capacity Index has been finalized and is now included. The result is AIS 2005-Update 2008.

AIS 2005 was a major revision, expansion and improvement to the AIS 98 Update. It reflects input from medical specialties, academic research, governmental agencies, and industry.

 Improvements include:

  • Comparability with other injury scoring systems such as the Organ Injury Scales of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma and the Fracture Classification system of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA).

  • The Extremities and Pelvis chapter is the result of a collaborative effort with OTA that reflects current clinical descriptions of skeletal and joint injuries and is designed to meet the needs of biomechanics researchers and automotive design engineers as well as clinical users.

  • Introduction of a scheme to include injury locators (e.g. aspect, side)

  • Increase in the number of injury descriptors, including codes for bilateral injuries where threat to life or impairment is worse when those injuries occur bilaterally

  • Inclusion of new graphics in Face, Thorax, Abdomen and Extremities and Pelvis chapters

  • Inclusion of new and expanded rules and guidelines within the chapters designed to assist the coder in correctly assigning injury codes

  • Options to match severity codes between AIS 98 and AIS 2005

The AIS was developed to provide researchers with a simple numerical method for ranking and comparing injuries by severity and to standardize the terminology used to describe injuries. The AIS is universally accepted as the foundation of injury severity scaling systems. AAAM’s International Injury Scaling Committee (IISC) is the parent organization of the AIS. AAAM initially developed the scale in 1971 and has provided periodic updates and continuous support since that time.

Copies of the AIS 2005-Update 2008 Dictionary or a non-searchable CD may be purchased for $225 (North America) or $250 (outside of North America) from our online bookstore. All orders outside of the United States will require additional shipping and handling fees. Please email AAAM at info@aaam.org for international shipping costs.

Site licenses for the use of AIS 2005 may also be purchased. Please email the AAAM at info@aaam.org and indicate the number of anticipated users and the nature of your organization. A representative will contact you.

Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) 1990 - Update 98

The AIS was developed to provide researchers with a simple numerical method for ranking and comparing injuries by severity, and to standardize the terminology used to describe injuries. The AIS is universally accepted as the foundation of injury severity scaling systems. AAAM's Committee on Injury Scaling is the parent organization of the AIS.

The following improvements have been incorporated:

  • Extensive rules and specific instructions throughout the dictionary which adhere to standardized coding principles

  • Clarification of the rules for calculating the Injury Severity Score when external injuries occur

  • Inclusion of the Organ Injury Scale (OIS) grading system developed by the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma where these scores have appropriate matches to existing injury descriptions in the dictionary to facilitate wider application in clinical research
