Southern Surgical Association. Annual scientific session. Hot Springs VA (USA), 1993/12/05.
Objective To determine the association between measures of medical manpower available to treat trauma patients and county trauma death rates in the United States.
The primary hypothesis was that greater availability of medical manpower to treat trauma injury would be associated with lower trauma death rates.
Summary Background Data When viewed from the standpoint of the number of productive years of life lost, trauma has a greater effect on health care and lost productivity in the United States than any disease.
Allocation of health care manpower to treat injuries seems logical, but studies have not been done to determine its efficacy.
The effect of medical manpower and hospital resource allocation on the outcome of injury in the United States has not been fully explored or adequately evaluated.
