Ten-year trend in survival and resource utilization at a level I trauma center. (1/488)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of increasing trauma center experience over time on survival and resource utilization. METHODS: The authors studied a retrospective cohort at a single level I trauma center over a 10-year period, from 1986 to 1995. Patients included all hospital admissions and emergency department deaths. The main outcome measures were the case-fatality rate adjusted for injury severity, hospital length of stay, and costs. RESULTS: A total of 25,979 patients were admitted or died. The number of patients per year increased, from 2063 in 1986 to 3313 in 1995. The proportion of patients transferred from another institution increased from 16.2% to 34.4%. Although mean length of stay declined by 28.4%, from 9.5 to 6.8 days, costs increased by 16.7%, from $14,174 to $16,547. The use of specific radiologic investigations increased; the frequency of operative procedures either remained unchanged (craniotomy, fracture fixation) or decreased (celiotomy). After adjusting for injury severity and demographic factors, the mortality rate decreased over 10 years. The improvement in survival was confined to patients with an injury severity score > or =16. CONCLUSION: Over a 10-year period, the case-fatality rate declined in patients with severe injuries. Overall acute care costs increased, partially because of the increased use of radiologic investigations. Even in otherwise established trauma centers, increasing cumulative experience results in improved survival rates in the most severely injured patients. These data suggest that experience contributes to a decrease in mortality rate after severe trauma and that developing trauma systems should consider this factor and limit the number of designated centers to maximize cumulative experience at individual centers.  (+info)

Trauma emergency unit: long-term evaluation of a quality assurance programme. (2/488)

OBJECTIVE: Long-term evaluation of a quality assurance programme (after an assessment in 1993). DESIGN: Review of medical records. SETTING: Emergency area of an orthopaedic, trauma, and plastic surgery unit in a French teaching hospital (Besancon). SUBJECTS: 1187 consecutive ambulatory patients' records, from July 1995. MAIN MEASURES: Occurrence of near adverse events (at risk events causing situations which could lead to the occurrence of an adverse event). RESULTS: 71 near adverse events were identified (5.9% of the ambulatory visits). There was a significant decrease in the rate of near adverse events between 1993 (9.9% (2056 ambulatory visits, 204 near adverse events)), and 1995 (5.9% (1187 ambulatory visits, 71 near adverse events)), and significant change in the proportion of each category of adverse event (decrease in departures from prevention protocols). CONCLUSIONS: Despite their limitations, the effectiveness and efficiency of quality assurance programmes seem to be real and valuable. Maintaining quality improvement requires conditions which include some of the basic principles of total quality management (leadership, participatory management, openness, continuous feed back). The organisation of this unit as a specialised trauma centre was also a determining factor in the feasibility of a quality assurance programme (specialisation and small size, high activity volume, management of the complete care process). Quality assurance is an important initial step towards quality improvement, that should precede consideration of a total quality management programme.  (+info)

Sophisticated hospital information system/radiology information system/picture archiving and communications system (PACS) integration in a large-scale traumatology PACS. (3/488)

Picture archiving and communications system (PACS) in the context of an outpatient trauma care center asks for a high level of interaction between information systems to guarantee rapid image acquisition and distribution to the surgeon. During installation of the Innsbruck PACS, special aspects of traumatology had to be realized, such as imaging of unconscious patients without identification, and transferred to the electronic environment. Even with up-to-date PACS hardware and software, special solutions had to be developed in-house to tailor the PACS/hospital information system (HIS)/radiology information system (RIS) interface to the needs of radiologic and clinical users. An ongoing workflow evaluation is needed to realize the needs of radiologists and clinicians. These needs have to be realized within a commercially available PACS, whereby full integration of information systems may sometimes only be achieved by special in-house solutions.  (+info)

Paying a premium: how patient complexity affects costs and profit margins. (4/488)

OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND: Tertiary medical centers continue to be under extreme pressure to deliver high-complexity care, but paradoxically there is considerable pressure within these institutions to reduce their emphasis on tertiary care and refocus their efforts to develop a more community-like practice. The genesis of this pressure is the perceived profitability of routine surgical activity when compared with more complex care. The purpose of this study is to assess how the total cost and profit (loss) margin can vary for an entire trauma service. The authors also evaluate payments for specific trauma-related diagnostic-related groups (DRGs) and analyze how hospital margins were affected based on mortality outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors analyzed the actual cost of all trauma discharges (n = 692) at their level I trauma center for fiscal year 1997. Data were obtained from the trauma registry and the hospital cost accounting system. Total cost was defined as the sum of the variable, fixed, and indirect costs associated with each patient. Margin was defined as expected payments minus total cost. The entire population and all DRGs with 10 or more patients were stratified based on survival outcome, Injury Severity Score, insurance status, and length of stay. The mean total costs for survivors and nonsurvivors within these various categories and their margins were evaluated. RESULTS: The profit margin on nonsurvivors was $5,898 greater than for survivors, even though the mean total cost for nonsurvivors was $28,821 greater. Within the fixed fee arrangement, approximately 44% of transfers had a negative margin. Both survivors and nonsurvivors become increasingly profitable out to 20 days and subsequently become unprofitable beyond 21 days, but nonsurvivors were more profitable than survivors. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variance in both the costs and margins within trauma-related DRGs. The DRG payment system disproportionately reimburses providers for nonsurvivors, even though on average they are more costly. Because payers are likely to engage in portfolio management, patients can be transferred between hospitals based on the contractual relationship between the payer and the provider. This payment system potentially allows payers to act strategically, sending relatively low-cost patients to hospitals where they use fee-for-service reimbursement and high-cost patients to hospitals where their reimbursement is contractually capped. Although specific to the authors' trauma center and its payer mix, these data demonstrate the profitability of maintaining a level I trauma center and preserving the mission of delivering care to the severely injured.  (+info)

Trauma center maturation: quantification of process and outcome. (5/488)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The regional trauma system with the trauma center as its center is a model for health care networks. However, trauma center maturation has not been defined in the literature. The authors' hypothesis was that maturation of the trauma center would affect quantitatively both process and patient outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 15,303 trauma patients were admitted from 1987 to 1995. Annual admissions increased from 813 to 2669. Resources were generated as patient volume increased. Time to the operating room, length of stay, and complications were determined. TRISS methodology was used to calculate z scores and w values to compare actual with predicted mortality rates. RESULTS: Time to the operating room for laparotomy decreased from 62+/-73 to 35+/-47 minutes, from 32+/-32 to 20+/-17 minutes in hypotensive patients, and for craniotomy decreased from 88+/-54 to 67+/-49 minutes. The incidence of infectious, airway, neurologic, orthopedic, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and procedure-related complications declined significantly. Z scores and w values increased for penetrating and blunt injuries. Deaths for patients with ISS >15 declined significantly. Hospital length of stay decreased for all ranges of injury severity. CONCLUSIONS: As the trauma center matured, the process of delivering patient care became more efficient. The result was improved survival, fewer complications, and a shorter length of stay.  (+info)

Alcohol interventions in a trauma center as a means of reducing the risk of injury recurrence. (6/488)

OBJECTIVE: Alcoholism is the leading risk factor for injury. The authors hypothesized that providing brief alcohol interventions as a routine component of trauma care would significantly reduce alcohol consumption and would decrease the rate of trauma recidivism. METHODS: This study was a randomized, prospective controlled trial in a level 1 trauma center. Patients were screened using a blood alcohol concentration, gamma glutamyl transpeptidase level, and short Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (SMAST). Those with positive results were randomized to a brief intervention or control group. Reinjury was detected by a computerized search of emergency department and statewide hospital discharge records, and 6- and 12-month interviews were conducted to assess alcohol use. RESULTS: A total of 2524 patients were screened; 1153 screened positive (46%). Three hundred sixty-six were randomized to the intervention group, and 396 to controls. At 12 months, the intervention group decreased alcohol consumption by 21.8+/-3.7 drinks per week; in the control group, the decrease was 6.7+/-5.8 (p = 0.03). The reduction was most apparent in patients with mild to moderate alcohol problems (SMAST score 3 to 8); they had 21.6+/-4.2 fewer drinks per week, compared to an increase of 2.3+/-8.3 drinks per week in controls (p < 0.01). There was a 47% reduction in injuries requiring either emergency department or trauma center admission (hazard ratio 0.53, 95% confidence interval 0.26 to 1.07, p = 0.07) and a 48% reduction in injuries requiring hospital admission (3 years follow-up). CONCLUSION: Alcohol interventions are associated with a reduction in alcohol intake and a reduced risk of trauma recidivism. Given the prevalence of alcohol problems in trauma centers, screening, intervention, and counseling for alcohol problems should be routine.  (+info)

Molecular epidemiological investigation using a randomly amplified polymorphic DNA assay of Burkholderia cepacia isolates from nosocomial outbreaks. (7/488)

We experienced two Burkholderia cepacia outbreaks over a 1-year period. During this period, 28 B. cepacia isolates were obtained from clinical specimens, and 2 were obtained from environmental specimens (i.e., from a nebulizer solution and a nebulizer tube). These 30 isolates were subjected to the PCR-based randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) assay as well as to pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). In the first outbreak, in which eight patients hospitalized in the Trauma and Critical Care Center were involved, the RAPD assay revealed that all 20 isolates obtained from clinical specimens and the 2 isolates from environmental specimens had identical DNA profiles. These RAPD data enabled us to pinpoint a possible source and to take countermeasures to prevent further spread of the epidemic-causing strain. In the second outbreak, two consecutive B. cepacia infection/colonization cases were seen in the surgery ward. The RAPD profiles of four isolates obtained were again identical, but they were distinct from those seen in the first outbreak, clearly indicating that the second outbreak was not related to the first. Thus, our experience demonstrated that the RAPD assay is a useful and reliable tool for epidemiological studies of B. cepacia isolates from nosocomial outbreaks. Since the RAPD assay could provide discriminatory potential and reproducibility comparable to those of the widely used PFGE assay with less complexity and in a shorter time, the introduction of the RAPD assay into hospital microbiology laboratories as a routine technique may help prevent nosocomial outbreaks.  (+info)

Watson Jones Lecture. The organisation of trauma services in the UK. (8/488)

To provide a high level of orthopaedic trauma care, education and research, across the country, trauma services in the UK require modification. Good information is necessary prior to formulating ideas and proposals. Trauma care provision must be considered comprehensively at both the national and local levels. As a first step, it is important to know just how many acute hospitals there are in the country. It is also important to know about the distribution of surgical specialities and the number of consultant orthopaedic surgeons staffing those hospitals.  (+info)

Exciting opportunity in Normal, IL for Carle Physician Group as a Pulm/Critical Care Position at Level II Trauma Center in Vibrant College Town
In this study, we found that the trauma volume of our regional trauma center was appropriate, comparable to that in level I trauma centers in the US. The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma criteria for level I trauma center verification include an annual number of at least 1,200 patients, of which at least 240 must have an ISS ,15 [8]. Before the establishment of the regional trauma center, there were about 250 patients with severe trauma (ISS ,15) annually in GMC Trauma Center. Previous studies have shown that the establishment of a designated trauma center and the centralization of the management of severely injured patients can result in better outcomes [5,9]. Therefore, an increased patient volume after trauma center establishment could help in fulfilling the purpose of the plan. In addition, an increasing rate of direct transportation of severely injured patients via emergency medical services (EMS) was observed in this study. In one study from Korea, the proportion of ...

A trauma center (or trauma centre) is a hospital equipped and staffed to provide care for patients suffering from major traumatic injuries such as falls, motor vehicle collisions, or gunshot wounds. A trauma center may also refer to an emergency department (also known as a casualty department or accident and emergency) without the presence of specialized services to care for victims of major trauma. In the United States, a hospital can receive trauma center status by meeting specific criteria established by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and passing a site review by the Verification Review Committee.[1] Official designation as a trauma center is determined by individual state law provisions. Trauma centers vary in their specific capabilities and are identified by Level designation: Level I (Level-1) being the highest and Level III (Level-3) being the lowest (some states have five designated levels, in which case Level V (Level-5) is the lowest). The highest levels of trauma centers ...

Canadian trauma units have relatively little experience with major cardiac trauma (disruption of a cardiac chamber) so injury outcome may not be comparable to that reported from other countries. We compared our outcomes to those of other centers. Records of patients suffering major cardiac trauma over a nine-year period were reviewed. Factors predictive of outcome were analyzed. Twenty-seven patients (11 blunt and 16 penetrating) with major cardiac trauma were evaluated. Injury severity scores (ISS) were similar for blunt (49.6 ± 16.6) and penetrating (39.5 ± 21.6, p = 0.20) injuries. Five of 11 blunt trauma patients, and 9 of 16 penetrating trauma patients, had detectable vital signs on hospital arrival (p = 0.43). Ten patients underwent emergency department thoracotomy and 11 patients had cardiac repair in the operating theatre. Eleven patients survived and 16 died. Survivors had a lower ISS (33.7 ± 15.4) than non-survivors (50.4 ± 20.4; p = 0.03). Two of 11 blunt trauma patients and 9 of 16
Ive been discussing the little research there is on stay and play vs scoop and run. And now, hot off the press, we have a paper about the ultimate version of scoop and run, the drive-by ambulance. This one looks at outcomes in patients who are dropped at the emergency department by private vehicle. This is the most basic form of prehospital care, with no interventions, just transportation. This type of transport is used by parents with their injured children, police who act as very basic first responders in some cities, and on occasion, gang members.. A multi-institutional group of authors used data in the National Trauma Databank to try to answer this question. They used three years worth of data, comparing outcomes from patients with ground EMS vs private transport who were treated at Level I and Level II trauma centers. Only gunshots and stabs were included, and all patients were 16 or older. The authors were focused on only one thing: mortality. This included death in the ED, and a model ...

An established health system in the Midwest is hiring a spine-focused general neurosurgeon to join their level II trauma center. The health system provides service and care to more than one million residents through over 50 health care centers, a health care plan, and five hospitals. Because it is the tertiary center for the area, the neurosurgeon can anticipate seeing a wide range of cases including the occasional pediatric case. The practice has two neurosurgeons, as well as a neurosurgeon that regularly provides locums coverage. Immediate volume is available due to one of neurosurgeons slowing down and there is opportunity to capture cases that are leaving the area. An interest in MIS is required with a lot of support for interest in degenerative spine cases ...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of five trauma center characteristics on survival outcome in nine serious injury categories. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from 1992 to 1996 on patients older than 14 years of age from 24 accredited trauma centers in Pennsylvania was performed. Trauma center characteristics selected for evaluation were level of accreditation, volume of trauma admissions, presence of in-house trauma surgeons, presence of a surgical residency program, and presence of an on-site medical school. Each of these characteristics was evaluated to determine its impact on survival in the selected serious injuries. A logistic regression model was then created to evaluate the most seriously injured patients as defined by A Severity Characterization of Trauma score of | 0.50. On the basis of the logistic regression model, odd ratios were calculated treating low volume as a significant risk factor for mortality. RESULTS: Of the 88,723

This paper highlights the importance of timely access to PTCs by demonstrating the relationship between PTC proximity and injury outcomes (defined as length of stay at the hospital). Using the concept of the golden hour, the paper also assesses spatial access of Canadian paediatric populations to PTCs. Several studies have highlighted the importance of PTCs in caring for injured children. For example, a study by Densmore et al,7 which analysed approximately 80 000 cases of paediatric trauma from 27 states in the USA, found that children who were treated in PTCs had significantly lower mortality rates than those treated in ATCs or in ATCs with a childrens unit. In addition, the author found the length of hospital stay to be much higher in ATCs and ATCs with childrens units. The author concluded that severely injured children were much better off being treated in a PTC.7 Similar results were obtained in the analysis of 13 351 patients treated at accredited trauma centres in the state of ...

N2 - The best outcome after pediatric injury can be anticipated when the entire trauma team is prepared, knowledgeable, and appreciative of the unique aspects of pediatric trauma and pays strict attention to all aspects of the care of the injured child. Five aspects should be considered essential elements in the delivery of care by any trauma team: preparation, equipment, and training; prevention of secondary insults after brain injury; the ability to recognize when nonoperative therapy should not be attempted or when it should be abandoned; consideration of the psychological impact of injury on a child; and, the role of trauma centers in injury prevention. Each of these areas encompasses important unanswered questions.. AB - The best outcome after pediatric injury can be anticipated when the entire trauma ...
BACKGROUND: The state of Floridas trauma system is organized into seven regions, two of which lack designated pediatric trauma centers. Injured children residing in these regions often require transfer out of their home region for definitive care. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the current regionalization approach, focusing on variations between regions. METHODS: Using the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration database, we identified all trauma patients 15 years old or younger admitted between 2009 and 2014. Patients with high-risk injury (ICD-9 Injury Severity Score < 0.85) who did not receive definitive treatment at a pediatric trauma center (PTC) were considered undertriaged. Outcomes of interest included mortality and long-term disability. Patients who were definitively treated at a facility outside their home region, but who had low risk injuries (ICD-9 Injury Severity Score > 0.9), required no procedures or ICU monitoring, and were ...
Bicycles are a popular form of transport and recreation worldwide. However, cyclists are likely to suffer more severe consequences of road accidents than users of motorized vehicles. Road accidents involving cyclists have widely varying consequences, ranging from minor abrasions to fractures and death. One nationally representative study found that bicyclists had 2.3 times as many fatalities and 1.8 times as many nonfatal injuries as motor vehicle occupants per 100 million person-trips [1]. It is estimated that for every two million trips, 600 injuries will occur and one bicyclist will die in a crash [2]. Approximately a third of the injured cyclists required hospitalization [3, 4]. In the United States, there were more than 25,000 bicycling-related hospitalizations annually between 2002 and 2009 [5]. These hospitalizations accounted for a national estimate of one billion dollars in total hospital charges per year [5].. To improve the safety of cyclists, multiple governing bodies have been ...

ISSN 2078-5135. http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAMJ.8499.. BACKGROUND: Trauma is a leading cause of death in the developing world. Blunt thoracic trauma represents a major burden of disease in both adults and children. Few studies have investigated the differences between these two patient groups.OBJECTIVE: To compare mechanism of injury, presentation, management and outcome in children and adults with blunt thoracic trauma.METHODS: Patients were identified from the database of the trauma intensive care unit at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital, Durban, South Africa. Demographics and relevant data were extracted from a pre-existing database.RESULTS: Of 415 patients admitted to the unit, 331 (79.7%) were adults and 84 (20.2%) children aged ,18 years. The median injury severity score (ISS) was similar for both age groups ...
The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the injury pattern, mechanisms, severity, and mortality of adolescents and adults hospitalized for treatment of trauma following motorcycle accidents in a Level I trauma center. Detailed data regarding patients aged 13-19 years (adolescents) and aged 30-50 years (adults) who had sustained trauma due to a motorcycle accident were retrieved from the Trauma Registry System between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2012. The Pearsons chi-squared test, Fishers exact test, or the independent Students t-test were performed to compare the adolescent and adult motorcyclists and to compare the motorcycle drivers and motorcycle pillion. Analysis of Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) scores revealed that the adolescent patients had sustained higher rates of facial, abdominal, and hepatic injury and of cranial, mandibular, and femoral fracture but lower rates of thorax and extremity injury; hemothorax; and rib, scapular, clavicle, and humeral fracture compared to
Level I is the highest ranking a trauma center can achieve. It signals that the hospital has an entire system of care in place to care for severely injured patients. This includes having a team of specially trained healthcare providers and extensive resources dedicated to providing trauma care 24/7. The criteria for state Level I designation mirrors that of the ACS and also requires the hospital to be re-evaluated every three years.. MDCH, in collaboration with partners in the healthcare community, recently developed and operationalized the statewide trauma system to better serve residents. A major component of the trauma system is the verification and designation of trauma facilities. MDCH will recognize hospitals in Michigan as Levels I, II, III or IV.. Bronson is proud to be a partner in the development of Michigans statewide trauma system and to have earned a Level I designation from the state, says Frank Sardone, Bronson Healthcare president and chief executive officer.

The increasing number of geriatric trauma patients in developed countries is a preoccupation at every stage in the continuum of trauma care. In the acute care setting, elderly patients require specific care strategies and patient outcome may be compromised by varying degrees of dedication to geriatric trauma across hospitals. We hypothesised that the performance of trauma centres in the population of geriatric patients differs to that among young adults. Analyses were based on the evaluation of hospital mortality across the 59 trauma centres of the inclusive trauma system in the province of Quebec, Canada (1999-2006). Trauma centre evaluation was based on estimates of risk-adjusted mortality generated using a random-intercept hierarchical logistic regression model. Adjustment was performed with a risk score generated by the Trauma Risk Adjustment Model. Results for young adults (16-64 years) and geriatric patients (≥65 years) were compared using hospital ranks and outliers. Among the 55 355 ...

The impact of designated trauma centers on pediatric outcomes continues to be researched. Several studies show improved survival and overall improved functional outcomes for injured children when initial evaluation and resuscitation occur at designated pediatric trauma centers.8-14 Other studies show no difference in survival for children cared for at adult trauma centers.15,16 Despite the differences in findings, most pediatric trauma patients must be initially evaluated and stabilized in nonspecialty centers until arrangements for transport to an appropriate facility is made for definitive care. Because of anatomic reasons, even seemingly benign mechanisms of trauma have the potential of producing severe injuries in infants and young children. ...
Finally, some good news on homicides in Chicago. After a bloody 2012 that drew international attention for soaring gun rates and rising gang violence, homicides are down 34 percent from the same period in 2012. Killings this year have dipped to a level not seen since the early 1960s, reported The New York Times. As of Friday, June 14, at least 152 people were killed in Chicago so far in 2013, according to the Chicago Tribunes RedEye. Police officials are touting the citys aggressive new policing strategy in the citys most violent hot zones, many of which are on the South Side, the historic home of the citys Black community.. But does the lack of an adult trauma center on the South Side possibly contribute to more deaths? Possibly. Chicago-area gunshot victims who are shot more than five miles from a trauma center have a higher mortality rate, according to a new study.. The study was published by the American Journal of Public Health. Dr. Marie Crandall, professor in surgery/trauma care ...

Background Human polymerized hemoglobin (PolyHeme, Northfield Laboratories) is a universally compatible oxygen carrier developed to treat life-threatening anemia. This multicenter phase III trial was the first US study to assess survival of patients resuscitated with a hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier starting at the scene of injury. Study Design Injured patients with a systolic blood pressure ≤ 90 mmHg were randomized to receive field resuscitation with PolyHeme or crystalloid. Study patients continued to receive up to 6 U of PolyHeme during the first 12 hours postinjury before receiving blood. Control patients received blood on arrival in the trauma center. This trial was conducted as a dual superiority/noninferiority primary end point. Results Seven hundred fourteen patients were enrolled at 29 urban Level I trauma centers (79% men; mean age 37.1 years). Injury mechanism was blunt trauma in 48%, and median transport time was 26 minutes. There was no significant difference between day 30 mortality
The Trauma Survivors Network (TSN) was developed as a program of the American Trauma Society (ATS) to support recovery for adult trauma patients. However, the children of adult trauma patients, families of pediatric trauma patients, and pediatric trauma patients previously had scarce resources. Our institution, in collaboration with the ATS, sought to expand the TSN to support pediatric trauma patients, caregivers, and family members. We aimed to determine whether the TSN could be transferred to the pediatric population. Focus groups identified psychosocial needs of younger survivors, children of adult survivors, and caregivers. A Pediatric TSN Coordinator was hired, Pediatric TSN Peer Visitors were recruited and trained, and Pediatric TSN Activity Hour was implemented for pediatric patients and families. Since implementation 1 year ago, 26 peer visitors have been trained and have conducted approximately 200 visitations. In total, 93 patients and family members have attended Pediatric TSN ...
The role of alcohol in motor vehicle crashes has been recognized almost since the advent of motor vehicles (U.S. Department of Transportation, 1968). As early as 1936, Norway enacted legislation establishing a BAC of 0.05% as the limit for operating a motor vehicle. Still, alcohol persists as a major factor in motor vehicle injury (Cherpitel, 1993). The role of drugs other than alcohol is less clear, particularly when it comes to how extensively they are involved in real world crashes. Several recent studies have reported drugs in patients admitted to hospital for treatment of injury. Soderstrom et al. (1989) reported the presence of marijuana in almost 35 percent of trauma victims admitted to a major trauma center, with motor vehicle crashes accounting for about two-third of the patients studied. Younger patients had a higher rate of marijuana use, and alcohol was more characteristic of motor vehicle crash victims. Other studies examining drug use in trauma victims include Lindenbaum et al. ...

Thoracic trauma is commonplace and accounts for 50-70% of the injuries found in severe trauma. Little information is available in the literature as to timing of endotracheal intubation. The main objective of this study was to assess the accuracy of the ROX index in predicting successful standard oxygen (SO) therapy outcomes, and in pre-empting intubation. Patient selection included all thoracic trauma patients treated with standard oxygen who were admitted to a Level I trauma center between January 1, 2013 and April 30, 2020. Successful standard SO outcomes were defined as non-requirement of invasive mechanical ventilation within the 7 first days after thoracic trauma. One hundred seventy one patients were studied, 49 of whom required endotracheal intubation for acute respiratory distress (28.6%). A ROX index score ≤ 12.85 yielded an area under the ROC curve of 0.88 with a 95% CI [0.80-0.94], 81.63sensitivity, 95%CI [0.69-0.91] and 88.52 specificity, 95%CI [0.82-0.94] involving a Youden index of 0.70.

The specialty first developed through the treatment of cranial trauma and intracranial mass lesions. Successive advances in microsurgical techniques, non-invasive imaging, neuro-anaesthesia, intensive care, image-guided surgery, and the introduction of sophisticated radio-oncological and interventional treatments have greatly enhanced and widened the scope of effective treatments. Head and spinal injuries remain a leading source of mortality and disability, and as such most neurosurgical units are an essential component of local major trauma centres. Overall, emergency and urgent activity comprises some 50% of the caseload of a neurosurgical unit, indicative of the uniquely high acuity of neurosurgical patients. General neurosurgery is typically taken to embrace spinal, trauma, oncology, CSF diversion (i.e. hydrocephalus), posterior fossa and peripheral nerve surgery. Most neurosurgeons will cover these cases on call but may refer on subsequently. New consultants are typically appointed with a ...

Each year in the USA, 1.5-2.5 million Americans are so severely injured that they require inpatient hospitalization. Multiple conditions including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcohol and drug use problems, depression, and chronic medical conditions are endemic among physical trauma survivors with and without traumatic brain injuries. The trauma survivors outcomes and support (TSOS) effectiveness-implementation hybrid trial is designed to test the delivery of high-quality screening and intervention for PTSD and comorbidities across 24 US level I trauma center sites.
