From MDLinx, quoting the European Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery:
A steady increase in the number of procedures was observed over time. Less invasive methods of airway and breathing support were frequently inadequate, though definitive surgical airway or chest decompression was effective each time it was performed. Thoracotomy was performed infrequently. There are implications for the training of pre–hospital doctors who work in the majority of the UK.
