Study Title and Description
Comparison of respiratory rate and peripheral oxygen saturation to assess severity in trauma patients.
Key Questions Addressed
|2||Key Question 2: For patients with known or suspected trauma who are treated out-of-hospital by EMS personnel, what is the predictive utility of measures of respiratory compromise for predicting serious injury requiring transport to the highest level trauma center available? 2a: How does the predictive utility of the studied measures of respiratory compromise vary across age groups (e.g., children or the elderly)? Specifically, what values for the different age ranges are supported by the evidence?|
