Welcome to the SMRTAC Website

SMRTAC is a collaborative effort of the Southeastern and South Central EMS regions' trauma providers organized from the statewide trauma system.  SMRTAC was approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Health in December 2009.  As SMRTAC continues to collaborate on our mission of decreasing morbidity and mortality of trauma patients in our region, it is our goal to provide an up to date informational website. On this site you will find meeting minutes from the various subcommittees and the SMRTAC, educational information, links to some great resources, a calendar of upcoming SMRTAC events, and even some nice pictures taken of various agencies throughout our region.  Please review the calendar for updated regional events.

Regional Practice Management Guidelines Approved!

Through the state's designation visits, there were several consistent practice inconsistencies identified and SMRTAC, in collaboration with Mayo Clinic Trauma Centers at the October 13th Performance Improvement Seminar held in Welch MN, the participants developed these guidelines.  SMRTAC's goal with these PMGs is to share guidance in standardization of trauma care in our region.  Please review these PMGs, use as a reference for PMGs in your trauma care, and provide feedback.  SMRTAC will provide education, implementation, and monitoring of these guidelines.  The guidelines are listed in the left hand column under SMRTAC.

The Pediatric Subcommittee has approved a suggested list of pediatric specific equipment list for the care of the injured pediatric patient. Other resources such as normal vital signs and pediatric GCS are also nmow available as a reference.  Please review the links found in the Pediatric Subcommittee folder on this page.  Any suggestions or comments are welcome and will be communicated with the Co-Chairs of this committee that are posted via the comment link on this page.
