Abstract:Information about incoming patients received from the ambulance crews and pre-hospital staff is critical in assisting emergency medical teams prepare for the patient care. Yet few studies have focused on the importance of this pre-hospital information in the care of critically ill patients. In this study, we examine the use of pre-hospital information during trauma resuscitations. Our analysis of communication during seven actual resuscitation events revealed several challenges in sharing and recalling pre-hospital information. Using these findings, we discuss design opportunities for improving the use of pre-hospital information during resuscitations.
