Characteristics of trauma centers and trauma surgeons. Discussion.
Eastern Association for the surgery of Trauma. Annual scientific assembly. Longboat Key FL (USA), 1993/01/13.
We surveyed directors of trauma at 408 trauma centers (as indicated by the state chairmen of the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma [ACSCOT]). Of the 408 trauma directors 290 (71%) responded with information relative to their hospitals and the 1537 general surgeons taking trauma call.
Altogether, 75% of the surgeons worked on an identified trauma service, 80% belonged to a cadre of surgeons identified as expert, 52% were viewed as full time, 25% provided in-house staff coverage, and 76% had completed an ATLS course.
Six percent of the entire group were 60 to 73 years old and demonstrated a commitment to trauma equal to that of their younger cohorts.
