Purpose: Little is known about he patient's experience of trauma resuscitation in the ED. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine: 1) patients' perspective of the experience of trauma resuscitation in the ED; 2) if patients have perceptions of vulnerability during trauma resuscitation in the ED; and 3) if there are factors which influence the patients' experience during trauma resuscitation in the ED. Study Design: A qualitative study using interpretive phenomenology was used. Setting: The study was conducted in a Level I Lead Trauma Hospital (LTH) in Ontario, Canada. Sample: Inclusion criteria were: age 18 years or greater, Trauma Code initiated in the ED; GSC greater than or equal to 13; RTS greater than or equal to 10; physically and cognitively capable of participating in an interview in English. The sample of seven participants included 4 males and 3 females (mean age 44.5 years). Methodology: One-on-one semi-structured interviews were conducted on the inpatient Trauma Unit between day 2 and day 7 post trauma resuscitation. Interviews were tape-recorded and then transcribed verbatim by the researcher. Initial interviews averaged 45 minutes in length. Follow-up interviews were conducted with four participants seven to twelve months after the initial interview. Data analysis utilized Colaizzi's eight-step analytical process. Recorded interviews and review of transcripts with participants were used to address credibility. An audit trail that included tape-recorded interviews, transcripts, field notes, and journal maintained by the researcher addressed audibility. Prior to commencement of the study the Hospital Research Ethics Board and Nursing Research Ethics Review Committee granted ethical approval. Results: Four themes were revealed in the data analysis: I Remember, I Was Scared, I Felt Safe, and I Will Be OK. Patients felt safe and did not perceive themselves to be vulnerable during trauma resuscitation in the ED. Several factors that influence the patients? experience of trauma resuscitation in the ED have been identified. Conclusion: Based on the results, recommendations for change in the provision of care to patients undergoing trauma resuscitation in the ED have been made. [Research Paper Presentation]
