Details of Research

Cambridgeshire Trauma Audit Research Project (CTARP)

CTARP is a population based multi-agency injury research register which aims to describe the epidemiology of serious and fatal injury within the geographical county of Cambridgeshire. Injury is defined as physical damage resulting when a human body is "suddenly or briefly subjected to intolerable levels of energy" in amounts that "exceed the threshold of physiological tolerance" (WHO).

"Trauma kills or seriously injures over 3,500 children and young people each year. If it were a disease it would be called an epidemic. We are determined to learn as much as we can so we can improve treatment and prevention." Dr James French Magpas Research Fellow 2005

Magpas initiated the CTARP project in 2005; the results are due to be published at the end of 2013. The charity anticipate being able to demonstrate a particularly strong correlation between positive patient outcomes and critical care provided by Magpas Helimedix.
