dc.description.abstractEvery year, millions of people are affected by traumatic injuries. The golden hour has been a point of education for emergency medical crews as well as emergency departments across the world in order to implement safe, effective, and suitable care for each individual. Research has been conducted to see if treatment within the ‘golden hour’ affects patient mortality rates. Specifically, the studies have examined how the timing of each intervention changes the patient’s outcomes. To test the hypothesis that treatment within the golden hour affects patient outcomes (mortality), studies have been retrospectively conducted to see when treatment happened and what eventually happened to the patient. Data was submitted to trauma committees which has since been pulled to find the correlation between treatment and outcome. The results did not necessarily state that the golden hour was supported, but they did state that a delay in treatment did negatively affect patient outcomes. Due to the findings of these studies, swift management should be initiated by emergency medical crews and emergency departments quickly to prevent potential negative outcomes.en_US
