ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 3548: Improving Trauma Care Act of 2013   [open pdf - 14KB]

"H.R. 3548 would amend the Public Health Service Act to revise the definition of trauma as it applies to grants and activities authorized to provide support for trauma and emergency care. Under current law, the definition of trauma means an injury resulting from exposure to a mechanical force. The bill would expand the definition of trauma to also include an injury resulting from exposure to an extrinsic agent that is thermal, electrical, chemical, or radioactive."
