Created a database of all penetrating cardiac trauma that presented to the Elvis Presley Trauma Center at the Regional Medical Center between 1996 to the present. This observational, non-randomized, retrospective study evaluates the sensitivity and specificity of the Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (FAST) examination utilized by residents at the Elvis Presley Trauma Center. There are several other research papers that are currently being extracted from this database.
