Trauma (Emergency Medicine)

by Julianna Jung, MD, FACEP

Trauma is a leading cause of death and disability. The principles of emergency management—including an evaluation of a patient’s airway, breathing, circulation, disabilities, and environmental exposures—are important in trauma situations, and rapidly generating a differential diagnosis is of paramount importance for prompt evaluation and management.

The common etiologies of trauma should be categorized based on the mechanism of injury and bodily location, then further characterized based on symptomatology, a basic physical exam, and imaging evaluation, including the FAST examination. Once suspected etiologies are stratified based on likelihood, emergency interventions should be performed, a determination of the possibility of surgically reversible injury should be made, and appropriate laboratory or imaging tests should be ordered.
