Following attendance at a lecture by an anaesthetist who had spent time at the R. Adams Cowley shock trauma centre, and after seeing a documentary about Cowley's work on BBC TV, we began to investigate the possibility of spending time at the trauma centre as observers. In July 1993, we spent 2 weeks in Baltimore observing a system that has been tailored to meet the needs of multiply injured patients by utilising resources and the skills of all members of the multidisciplinary team.
