The data element “Was patient extricated?” states that extrication is defined as any action that disentangles or frees from entrapment or delays in transport. Is there a time frame the registry should go by when determining a delay in transport?

There is no specific timeframe. While intent is to document if there is a delay, there does not need to be a delay to report extrication.
