The comparative effectiveness of time-adjusted trauma center care on mortality

  • Carr, Brendan (PI)

Project Details

Description

Project Description: The proposed research has three aims:

1. Determine the accuracy of a model of prehospital times for patients traveling to trauma and nontrauma center hospitals.

2. Determine whether severity-adjusted differences in mortality exist for injured patients treated at trauma and nontrauma center hospitals across the U.S.

3. Determine if validated estimates of prehospital time are significant predictors of severity-adjusted mortality for injured patients treated at trauma and nontrauma center hospitals across the U.S.
