Abstract

Key PointsQuestionDoes ground emergency medical services transport confer a survival advantage vs private vehicle transport for patients with penetrating injuries? FindingsIn this cohort study of 103 029 patients included in the National Trauma Data Bank, individuals transported by private vehicle were significantly less likely to die than similarly injured patients transported by ground emergency medical services, even when controlling for injury severity. MeaningGround emergency medical services transport is not associated with improved survival compared with private vehicle transport among patients with penetrating injuries in urban trauma systems, suggesting prehospital trauma care may have a limited role in this subset of patients.
