Evaluation of Trauma Team Activation Criteria
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01771861|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : January 18, 2013
Last Update Posted : October 28, 2016
The aim of the study is to establish the predictive properties of our trauma team activation protocol, and its individual criteria, and if possible to suggest changes that reduce over- and undertriage.
The study will also give an overview of the frequency and type of emergency procedures at a university hospital trauma center, which can contribute to optimal resource use and indicate which type of surgical skills are necessary in our trauma emergency procedures.
