Abstract
The aim of this study was to describe the initial care and management of trauma patients in Denmark.
A questionnaire was sent to all 64 hospitals in Denmark in July 1999. All responded. The questionnaire covered 81 questions.
The number of severely injured patients received by the hospitals was evenly distributed. Nine hospitals received more than 50 severely injured patients/year. Protocols for trauma care were available in 46 hospitals. Monitoring with ECG and pulse oximetry in the emergency room was possible in most hospitals. Most hospitals were also equipped to perform endotracheal intubation, chest tube drainage, surgical airway, and peritoneal lavage. Radiological and clinical laboratory services were available round the clock in most hospitals. Ultrasonography could be performed in 41 and CT in 36 hospitals. Three hospitals did not transfer patients to other facilities. An estimated quarter of the severely traumatised patients are transferred to a hospital with a higher level of trauma treatment.
Many Danish hospitals receive trauma patients. However, a number of hospitals do not have the necessary organisation, clinical capabilities, or resources for trauma care. There is a need for regional and national guidelines for trauma care with recommendations ensuring early recognition of patients who may be sufficiently cared for in the local hospital, and those who require transfer to trauma centres for definitive care.

Abstract
The authors conducted the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Course for 90 students who were in their 4th year of medicine at the University of Manitoba. The impact of the course was evaluated through questionnaires completed by students, instructors and emergency-room physicians. The students' performances were also compared with those of 96 practising physicians who took the ATLS course in Manitoba. The failure rate for students (3.3%) was not statistically different from that for practising physicians (4.2%). Overall, the students' performances in the written test were better (55% of students scored over 90% on the test compared with 15% of practising physicians). The student-to-faculty ratio was 1.5:1 and included 21 physician-instructors. Ninety-five percent of the faculty and students suggested that this course should be mandatory in the 4th year curriculum of medicine and that the course improves trauma care provided by the students and interns by increasing their confidence and improving communication with specialist surgeons. However, 10% of the faculty suggested that more time should be allocated to the surgical-skills practicum. The authors' experience with this program suggests that the ATLS course should be uniformly incorporated in the Canadian undergraduate 4th year medical curriculum and that techniques used in this course should be considered in other areas of the undergraduate medical curriculum.
