BACKGROUND Whereas organized trauma care systems have decreased trauma mortality in the United States, trauma system design has not been well addressed in developing nations. We sought to determine… Expand
Patterns of Errors Contributing to Trauma Mortality: Lessons Learned From 2594 Deaths
Objective:To identify patterns of errors contributing to inpatient trauma deaths. Methods:All inpatient trauma deaths at a high-volume level I trauma center from 1996 to 2004 inclusive were audited.… Expand
Outcome after hemorrhagic shock in trauma patients.
BACKGROUND It is essential to identify patients at high risk of death and complications for future studies of interventions to decrease reperfusion injury. METHODS We conducted an inception cohort… Expand
Haemorrhage control in severely injured patients
Most surgeons have adopted damage control surgery for severely injured patients, in which the initial operation is abbreviated after control of bleeding and contamination to allow ongoing… Expand
Fresh frozen plasma is independently associated with a higher risk of multiple organ failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
BACKGROUND Blood transfusion is known to be an independent risk factor for mortality, multiple organ failure (MOF), acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and nosocomial infection after injury.… Expand
