Injury and Trauma Care - studies

Injuries are estimated to become the number-one cause of death for men and women under the age of 45 by the year 2020.

Trauma patients present unique challenges to anesthesiologists.

Acute injuries require resource-intensive care and are often complex cases, especially when coupled with underlying, preexisting medical conditions.

Anesthesiologists are involved with trauma patients beginningwith airway and shock resuscitation, continuingwith intraoperative care during surgery, and extending on to pain management and critical care postoperatively.
