Improving the management of patients with severe trauma



Main objectives

The ambition of TrauMatrix is to provide a decision support tool for clinical teams involved in the management of trauma patients. This tool aims to support them in their real-time decision making by directing the management of major trauma patients to the most appropriate care units. It will predict the probability of events such as hemorrhagic shock or head trauma, as well as the adjustment of the care strategy. At the same time, it plans to specify the nature of the hospital, material and human resources to be anticipated in order to provide a better response to the patient's needs and to increase his or her chances of survival and absence of after-effects


Trauma is a major public health problem in France. It affects young and active patients, and generates disability and social exclusion. It is the leading cause of death in young patients (16-45 years) and is the third leading cause of disability-adjusted life years lost in our country.

Methodology/Technology used

The project is based on the Traumabase®, a regional observatory created in 2011 that has become a national registry of medical data on severe trauma. This registry, supported by a network of about a hundred emergency physicians and anesthesiologists throughout France, federates to date a large part of the French actors of heavy trauma. It allows to feed the improvement process of the patients' care and to facilitate scientific research around prospective and interventional studies
