Abstract

Despite improved education and prevention initiatives, trauma remains the leading cause of death in children. A variety of preventative measures have been developed to decrease the morbidity and mortality, and the financial burden on the health care system. This article discusses injury prevention strategies, issues in prehospital care, and key points of initial resuscitation. In addition, the major injury patterns are described with attention paid to the diagnosis and management of patients with multiple traumatic injuries.
