Table 2 Time-critical and Spinal Injuries by Trapped Status

From: A comparison of the demographics, injury patterns and outcome data for patients injured in motor vehicle collisions who are trapped compared to those patients who are not trapped

  Trapped % of all Extricationsa Not trapped Sig / p value:
Pelvic ring with blood loss > 20% n (%) 69 (1.0%) 0.16 370 (0.7%) 0.001
Blood loss > 20% n (%) 244 (3.5%) 0.56 1057 (1.9%) < 0.001
Tension Pneumothorax n (%) 105 (1.5%) 0.24 472 (0.8%) < 0.001
Multiple Spinal Fractures n (%) 942 (13.5%) 2.16 5003 (8.8%) < 0.001
