The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) protocol provides trauma teams with a framework for the initial evaluation and treatment of injured patients. The objective of this study was to analyze patterns of ATLS task performance among trauma resuscitation teams. EventFlow was useful for analyzing our dataset that contained multiple time-stamped variables and interval data. Deviations from ATLS protocol were easy to detect and the align function allowed for quick identification of various types of protocol violations.
