During this study we investigated the yearly risk of radiation exposure for surgical residents (group 1, n=8), emergency department (ED) physicians (group 2, n=6) and nurses (group 3, n=97) participating in the resuscitation of trauma victims in the emergency department of a 500-bed teaching hospital.
Dosimeter readings of the three study groups were recorded monthly over the 1-year study period.
During the study interval, 758 patients underwent resuscitation following trauma ; 2098 portable radiographs (758 chest films, 758 lateral cervical spine films, and 582 radiographs of the pelvis) were obtained during the resuscitation phase of these patients.
