Golden Hour Study

Working with the trauma research team at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital and scientists at the University of Birmingham, MAAC is participating in the Golden Hour study. This pioneering research project analyses blood samples taken from trauma patients by MAAC and WMAS’s MERIT teams. By obtaining pre-hospital samples within the first 60 minutes following injury, researchers can identify new markers, which may help clinicians to identify at-risk patients for trauma-related complications during their clinical care in hospital.
