  • Performing interventions in pre-hospital trauma management

    In 2005, the Advanced Life Support (ALS) teams delivering pre-hospital care in RegionSkane in southern Sweden received additional support by physicians, who were part of "Pre-hospital acute teams" (PHAT). This study of 202 cases and 9 pre-hospital interventions compared the incidence of pre-hospital medical interventions for trauma-patients cared for by conventional ALS teams and patients who received additional support by PHAT. The study found that the incidence of endotracheal intubation and immobilization of extremities was greater among patients supported by PHAT, compared to patients cared for by ALS teams alone.
