Abstract

Intensive care is a process and not a location and should commence as soon as major trauma is recognised. The management of severely injured patients requires all of the skills and resources of modern day intensive care medicine and can be challenging and expensive. Despite prolonged stays in the intensive care units and hospitals, the outcome for these patients is often excellent.
