|Acceleration of Procedure Reduction of Number of Transports and Transfers Involved Staff Member's Evaluation||Procedure: MIGTS treatment|
Objective: Pilot evaluation to which extend the implementation of a newly developed combined diagnostic and operation room, the multifunctional image guided therapy suite (MIGTS) may influence the emergency treatment of multiply injured patients.
Summary Background: Controlled data on the impact of modern technology integration in multiple trauma management and involved care providers are lacking.
Methods: Quasi-randomized clinical intervention study comparing the treatment of multiple trauma patients (injury severity score, ISS >16) in the MIGTS versus controls.
