Tai, M. C.-K., Cheng, R. C.-H. and Rainer, Timothy Hudson 2011. Trauma systems: Do trauma teams make a difference? Trauma 13 (4) , pp. 294-299. 10.1177/1460408611405294

This review describes the various components of a trauma team, and emphasises its value as one of many parts of a trauma system. The evidence for the team is weak and based on expert opinion and experience. Nevertheless, the evidence that high quality trauma systems improve survival, and that a trauma team is a vital component of all such systems is compelling. There is no evidence that a particular component of the team is essential. The trauma team is likely to have most impact on patients with moderate severity of trauma and probability of survival.
