The issue begins with highlighting the National Academics of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), formerly the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine, report published in June 2016. This massive document is entitled “A National Trauma Care System: Integrating Military and Civilian Trauma Systems to Achieve Zero Preventable Deaths.” Dr. James Feeney and colleagues from St. Francis Hospital in Hartford used their Trauma Quality Improvement Project (TQR) registry to determine the impact of preinjury warfarin versus direct oral anticoagulants (including thrombin and Xa inhibitors) on outcome following blunt intracranial hemorrhage. Dr. Stefano Siboni and colleagues from LA County/USC examined the National Trauma Data Bank from 2007 to 2012 to determine outcome following isolated blunt pancreatic injury. Dr. Michael Wandling and associates from Northwestern, Sunnybrook, and Johns Hopkins provide an interesting analysis of police versus ground EMS transport for penetrating trauma using the National Trauma Data Bank from 2010 to 2012.
