Introduction

This great loss of life has attracted public interest as well as public health community and civic organizations attention to come up and formulate strategies that can prevent or improve the damages caused by injuries (Cales, 1-8).

This has also brought about the need for trained ambulance crew who can offer pre-hospital care to the injured patients. It is evident that both the basic trauma life support and advanced trauma life support have helped save a lot of lives as well as disabilities in the last decade and the present day. This has in turn attracted a lot of research on the health sector on the trauma life support methods and their efficiency in the health sector. This paper however is more concerned with noting the difference between the basic trauma life support and the advanced trauma life support as well as those patients that are exposed to basic trauma life support and advanced life support in California (Isenberg and Bissell, 265-270).
Empirical studies show that pre-hospital care is classified into two ...
