Table 5 Time intervals for physician treated patients after December 2007

From: Prehospital response model and time to CT scan in blunt trauma patients; an exploratory analysis of data from the head injury retrieval trial

  HIRT HEMS GSA HEMS P value
Combined tasking & mobilisation time (mins) 7 (6–8), n = 336 17 (13–24), n = 46 <0.001
Physician team scene time (mins) for all patients treated 18 (10–28), n = 328 32 (25–46), n = 43 <0.001
Subgroup of patients not trapped at the time of physician team contact with the patient
Physician team scene time (mins) 13 (9–21), n = 110 31 (23–46), n = 30 <0.001
Physician team scene time (mins) for patients requiring prehospital intubation 16 (10–23), n = 54 34 (25–51), n = 16 <0.001
  1. All values reported as medians (IQR). “Physician team scene time for all patients treated” is less than the “Duration total scene time” in Table 3 as a road ambulance team was usually the first to arrive on the scene with the physician team arriving subsequently.
