Nearly four decades ago, Baltimore's fledgling shock trauma center saved the life of a 29-year-old prosecutor. The young lawyer returned months later to ask the medical staff how he could repay their effort. "Run for office," center founder Dr. R Adams Cowley told C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger. "We need all the help we can get. " The exchange would alter the course of both of their careers. Ruppersberger would win election to the Baltimore County Council, rise to county executive and eventually become a member of Congress.

There is a golden hour between life and death. If you are critically injured, you have less than 60 minutes to survive." That's R. Adams Cowley, the pioneering physician and architect of trauma medicine who founded the nation's first shock trauma center in Baltimore, explaining the defining element of trauma care. It's because of Dr. Cowley's ground-breaking work that the Maryland State Police flew their first medevac transport in 1969. In the years since, medical advances have extended the golden hour in some instances, but the helicopter unit's work has continued to be founded on the concept.

In a nondescript brick building on the western edge of downtown Baltimore, the communications center that dispatches state police choppers to serious accidents in Maryland has the look and feel of a war room. One monitor maps movements of a dozen state police helicopters every half-minute. Another shows whether local hospitals are at or near capacity - "red alert." Another beams video from cameras posted along major highways. A video feed also shows the helipad at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, named for Dr. R Adams Cowley, the heart surgeon who 30 years ago created this emergency medical system as the first - and only - of its type.

R.A. Cowley would love it. Only he could fully appreciate the delicious irony of the situation at the famed shock-trauma center he founded.Here is his successor, the surgeon he wanted as his heir, running into a buzz saw of opposition from disgruntled doctors. Why? Because Dr. Kimble I. Maull wants to shake up the trauma center and return it to a leading-edge role.Does Dr. Maull back down? Nope, he charges ahead, like a bull in a china shop, dismissing three physicians who tried to undermine him, telling the governor to butt out of this minor flap and firmly planting his mark on the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

FEW DRIVERS know it, but they pay a fee so Maryland's shock-trauma system can continue its life-saving work -- the medevac helicopters, the paramedic units and the nine designated hospital trauma centers, including the renowned R Adams Cowley Center at University of Maryland Hospital. There's an $8 annual surcharge on Maryland's 2.2 million drivers when they renew their vehicle registrations. This supports a complex system that includes 32,000 emergency medical workers. Now the shock-trauma community is seeking $3 more on this surcharge.
