    In a study of 131 patients who suffered cardiopulmonary arrest in the field secondary to trauma, the ‘‘survivors were young, intubated, and penetrated’’ [31]. Almost all of those with blunt injuries died. The average response, scene, and transport time in this study was about 21 minutes, however. Pepe suggested that the classic ‘‘golden hour’’ for this group of patients should be condensed into a ‘‘platinum half hour,’’ which prioritizes aggressive airway and surgical interventions as the chief goals [20].

Training and simulation according to clear protocols offers the opportunity to realize problems and hazards and to shorten the time at the accident scene. Sampalis et al. demonstrated a significant increase in scene time associated with the use of ALS, secondary to the lack of a specific protocol [17], but this does not automatically include the delay to definitive in-hospital care for trained teams who are well aware of increased trauma mortality in the presence of excess prehospital time.
