Study Title and Description

Continuous noninvasive tissue oximetry in the early evaluation of the combat casualty: a prospective study.



Key Questions Addressed
1 Key Question 1: For patients with known or suspected trauma who are treated out-of-hospital by EMS personnel, what is the predictive utility of measures of circulatory compromise or derivative measures (e.g., the shock index) for predicting serious injury requiring transport to the highest level trauma center available? 1a: How does the predictive utility of the studied measures of circulatory compromise vary across age groups (e.g., children or the elderly)? Specifically, what values for the different age ranges are supported by the evidence?
