A Prospective Evaluation of the Safety and Effectiveness of a Provincial Prehospital Trauma Bypass Guideline for Adult Major Trauma Patients in Eastern Ontario

A Prospective Evaluation of the Safety and Effectiveness of a Provincial Prehospital Trauma Bypass Guideline for Adult Major Trauma Patients in Eastern Ontario

In Ontario, guidelines have been developed to allow paramedics to transport an injured person directly to a trauma hospital, bypassing closer hospitals en route. Our study will determine how effective these guidelines are in identifying patients who require care at a trauma hospital and in reducing the time required to get them there. We will also determine how often patients deteriorate during the bypass process and support another study that will obtain paramedics opinions on how to improve the guidelines.
