The Shock Trauma Go-Team
The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center’s “Go-Team” is a specialized component of the statewide emergency medical system. Our team is comprised of a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and a physician, both trained in advanced prehospital resuscitation. Our physicians come from the disciplines of emergency medicine, anesthesiology, critical care, trauma surgery, and vascular surgery. The purpose of the Go-Team is to augment EMS with advanced prehospital resuscitation to include advanced airway management, advanced ultrasound, endovascular techniques, blood component therapy, and other techniques required for prolonged field care.
