Slide 1

Prologue to Trauma LSU Medical Student Clerkship, New Orleans, LA

Slide 2

Goals Review the segments of the essential and optional overview for an injury tolerant Identify wounds requiring prompt mediation amid essential study Review the underlying strides of revival of an injury quiet in the ED Review the points of interest and employments of symptomatic modalities in the injury persistent Discuss the proper air of the injury understanding from the ED.

Slide 3

Epidemiology Trauma is an illness . Injury is unsurprising, preventable , and treatable. Injury is the 4 th driving reason for death in the US. Injury is the main source of death in individuals underneath the age of 45 in the US. 3.8 M passings/year/overall 312 M harmed

Slide 4

Epidemiology Trimodal dissemination of mortality Prehospital (Major head wounds, quick exsanguination) Early Hospital (Head, mid-section, stomach injury) ICU (End consequence of delayed hypoperfusion)

Slide 5

History of Trauma Systems 1991: Congress passed the Trauma Care Systems Planning and Development Act requiring the advancement of a Model Trauma Care System Plan to be utilized as a kind of perspective report for every state to build up its framework Based on the seriousness of damage, patients are triaged to injury focuses The American College of Surgeons has created necessities for injury focus accreditation of duty of work force and assets expected to keep up a condition of availability to get basically harmed patients. The Golden Hour

Slide 6

History of Trauma Systems

Slide 7

Initial Approach The underlying way to deal with injury mind in the ED is a procedure that comprises of an underlying essential appraisal, fast revival, and a more exhaustive optional overview took after by demonstrative tests and extreme attitude. Consequent mortality and dismalness fixing straightforwardly to the underlying evaluation and revival

Slide 9

Primary Survey Rapid examination to distinguish and treat life undermining conditions. In a perfect world is performed in no time flat. A - Airway (with C-spine insurances) B - Breathing C - Circulation D - Disability E – Exposure When disturbances in any of the parts of the essential study are recognized, treatment is attempted instantly.

Slide 10

Primary Survey - Airway Maintain C-spine precautionary measures Clear any blocks Jaw push rather than head tilt button lift Endotracheal intubation for aviation route insurance or expected clinical course (ie,obstruction from blood or vomitus, neck hematoma, facial blazes or injury, GCS 8 or less, aggressive patient, potential for aviation route trade off while out of office.)

Slide 11

Primary Survey - Breathing Auscultation for respective breath sounds Palpation for subcutaneous emphysema - needle decompression took after by mid-section tube for pneumothorax Inspection for thrash mid-section Observation of respiratory rate, oxygen immersion, and general work of breathing - mechanical ventilation for deficient ventilation or to lessening work of breathing

Slide 13

Primary Survey - Circulation Check fringe beats, heart rate, BP, beat weight, slender refill, cyanosis All hypotensive injury patients are thought to be in hemorrhagic stun 2 substantial bore fringe IV's (no less than 18 gage) Control outer dying

Slide 15

Primary Survey - Circulation

Slide 16

Primary Survey - Circulation Begin volume revival with liter boluses of crystalloid for class I or II drain. Start crystalloid and blood for class III or IV discharge. O-blood until sort particular is accessible Constant reconsideration is foremost If class I or II is tolerant as yet hinting at stun after 3L of crystalloid, start blood "3:1 govern" 3cc crystalloid for each 1cc of blood misfortune

Slide 17

Primary Survey - Circulation 5 Places life debilitating discharge can happen -Chest -Abdomen -Pelvis -Thighs -Externally

Slide 18

Primary Survey - Circulation Cardiac Tamponade can bring about hypotension with little blood misfortune. Becks group of three: hypotension, stretched neck veins, muted heart sounds Easily affirmed with ultrasound Pericardiocentesis

Slide 21

Primary Survey - Disability Quick appraisal of capacity to move all furthest points Glascow Coma Scale

Slide 22

Primary Survey – Exposure Completely disrobe the patient and review the whole patient from make a beeline for toe both front and back. Keep up spinal precautionary measures amid logrolling Inspect both axillae and peritoneum Warm covers!!!

Slide 23

Secondary Survey Head to toe assessment once any disturbances in essential study have been tended to. Plentiful History -Allergies -Medications -Past therapeutic history (LMP, Td, transfusions) -Last feast -Events paving the way to injury

Slide 24

Imaging Choice of imaging methodology relies on upon nature of wounds and security of patient. Learning of damage system and file of suspicion most essential

Slide 25

Imaging – Plain Films Quick Can be performed at bedside Useful for fast recognizable proof of pneumothorax, hemothorax, breaks and finding ballistics

Slide 27

Imaging – Ultrasound Quick Can be performed at bedside FAST: Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma Rapid examination to distinguish free intraperitoneal liquid or potentially pericardial liquid

Slide 29

Imaging – CT Detailed Requires patient to leave the office Necessary for head injury

Slide 31

Disposition To the OR -Unstable patients with limit or infiltrating stomach injury or mid-section injury. Hemothorax with >1500 cc of blood out at first. Surgical wounds related to imaging. Confirmation - Nonsurgical, high-chance wounds Discharge -Stable patients, minor or no wounds distinguished.
