Table 1 Definitions of starting and stopping time registrations

From: Routinely recorded versus dedicated time registrations during trauma work-up

Recorded time intervals Start recording Stop recording
Trauma room time Patient enters trauma room Patient leaves trauma room
Time to start CT-scanning Patient enters trauma room First CT image obtained
Imaging time First image obtained during trauma work up Last image obtained during trauma-workup
Time from admission on Trauma Room to ICU Patient enters trauma room Patient arrives at the ICU
Time from admission on Trauma Room to intervention (either angiographical or surgical) Patient enters trauma room Patient arrives at angiography suite/OR
  1. The definitions are based upon the routinely recorded time registration. The same definitions were used for the dedicated recorded time registration. Time registration was done by an independent researcher who was not involved in actual trauma care. Recording was started and stopped when the patient crossed the threshold.
