T-10 - Colorado's First & Only Dedicated Trauma OR
Trauma Room 10 or T-10, is a dedicated field-to-surgery suite that stands ready 24/7 for trauma surgeons and specially trained shock trauma teams to provide lifesaving care to the most severly ill and injured patients.
T-10 was first opened at St. Anthony Central Hospital in 1977, and now will bring an even higher level of technology and care to the new St. Anthony Hospital Level I Shock Trauma Center. T-10 is accessible by a dedicated high-speed elevator, making it possible to speed a patient and entire trauma team from the Emergency Department or helipad entrance in only three seconds.
Features of T-10 include a ceiling-boom design that integrates imaging and instrumentation, which can be moved around the OR and frees space for the surgical team. A dumb-waiter for blood delivery and a specialized pneumatic tube system enable blood and pharmaceuticals to be delivered to trauma teams even more quickly, plus CT imaging and interventional radiology equipment is immediately across the hall.
T-10 is an integral part of the nationally strong trauma outcomes at St. Anthony Hospital.
