About

The aim of the study is to measure the effect of Finnish physician-staffed EMS unit treatment methods on traumatic brain injury (TBI) patient prognosis. In the second part of the study the gathered data will be combined with the data from an earlier study (NCT01454648) for regression analysis. The aim of the second study is to identify prehospital factors influencing the prognosis of prehospital TBI patients.
