The impact of volume on outcome in seriously injured trauma patients : two years' experience of the Chicago trauma system. Discussion.
American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. Annual session. .
The American College of Surgeons has stated that in considering the development of trauma systems it is important to ensure an appropriate volume of seriously injured patients be seen by each trauma center in order to achieve acceptable mortality rates.
Our data suggest that an inverse relationship exists between volume and mortality, and support the necessity of configuring trauma systems in a manner that will ensure designated trauma centers will see a high volume of seriously injured patients.
