The overall objectives of the present study were to determine the relationships of nine system factors to trauma patient survival and to determine whether these relationships differ among patients with different causes for injuries. The nine system factors to be studied include four related to prehospital care and five related to hospital care. The research was designed to examine the effects of specific system factors thought to have an impact on injury survival and level of disability, and to determine whether these differ according to cause. The report is divided into two chapters: Chapter 1: Review of Literature; and Chapter 2: Results and Implications of the Research. Relevant references, figures, and tables follow each chapter. A set of appendices includes abstracts and papers developed as part of the research.
