French SMUR : Medical pre-hospital management reduces mortality in severe blunt trauma: a prospective epidemiological study

Important open access paper from a few years ago from France on role of prehospital critical care in severe trauma.

Medical pre-hospital management reduces mortality in severe blunt trauma: a prospective epidemiological study

This paper in my opinion, is not about physician vs paramedic model of prehospital care. It is more about what meaningful interventions may improve care. Here they argue prehospital RSI is a major factor. The use of prehospital vasopressors to minimise IV fluids is a controversial policy in trauma but may have a role in select cases. Love to read your comments on this notable paper!
