Emergency Medicine and Trauma Research

Communities depend on having access to high-quality care quickly - whether it's for a heart attack, stroke, injury from a car crash or a minor cut. Our commitment to deliver this and our verification as a Level 1 Trauma Center means that we are continually in search of new ways to improve urgent care delivery and outcomes.

Speeding up diagnosis and treatment is an important focus of our research. We collaborate with pre-hospital providers, like fire departments and paramedics to improve care even before our patients arrive. That includes determining the best way to stabilize victims at the scene of a car crash, updating standards to help reduce potential infection or researching treatments to reduce the need for surgery. We continually look at the best transportation methods and routes that emergency medical workers use to get patients here from any of the 26 counties we serve, whether by ambulance or helicopter.

Each year we see over 55,000 people in the Department of Emergency Medicine, and research benefits them in other ways too - like helping us find better ways to relieve pain for minor cuts all the way to major traumas. Feasibility studies are currently underway that involve screening patients who are seen in the Emergency Department for potentially deadly illnesses that may otherwise go undetected.

Being able to help prevent emergencies and traumas before they happen is sometimes the best treatment we can offer. By collecting and making available information about trauma, communities are able to better identify accident areas or neighborhoods that may benefit from a particular safety service or injury prevention program.

We support the research of Emergency Medicine residents through graduation as part of their medical education to provide the best and most comprehensive clinical experience possible.
