The Colorado Trauma Registry Manual is designed to assist Level I-III trauma centers in Colorado with collection of accurate trauma data. The Manual may also help Level IV and V Colorado trauma centers in making decisions regarding what data could be collected by their trauma programs.
Level I-III Colorado trauma centers are required to follow the inclusion criteria listed in Section A. Section B provides detailed information on each variable to be collected. The appendices address specific issues which may be problematic in data collection such as assignment of E-codes.
