Summary
Brief summary
Test the hypothesis that the implementation of real-time, computer-prompted algorithms in the
first half hour of trauma management will result in a measurable reduction in management
errors associated with the reception and resuscitation of major trauma patients.

Demonstrate that a reduction in management errors will translate into a reduction in
morbidity and mortality.
