CALL FOR CASES!
The U.S. Institute Of Surgical Research Joint Trauma Service and PFC Working Group need your help:
The JTS is working to conduct a retrospective case review relating to PFC in order to conduct an aggregate analysis.
We are currently collecting as many cases as we can obtain relating to prolonged role 1 care (anything greater than 4 hours) both trauma and non-trauma. We are accepting unclassified AAR’s, medical records, powerpoint summaries from meeting presentations, or even just personal memory/war stories. If the medic is available, we would like to interview them if possible. As there is really no database of such cases, many of the cases will be identified by word of mouth, although we are also searching the trauma registry, SOMA and SOCMSSC databases.
The results of our analysis will include the epidemiology of PFC cases and aggregate lessons learned. The report will be returned to the PFC working group and operational communities and published (likely in JSOM).
Thank you for any assistance you can provide to help identify these cases and the medics who provided such care. Cases may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
