Management of the Trauma Patient Hieu Ton-That, MD, FACS Loyola University Medical Center Division of Burns, Trauma and Surgical Critical Care Trauma in the United States 2.7 million hospital admissions per year Leading cause of death for ages 1-44 years 100,000 deaths per year from traumatic injuries Half die before they reach medical care Hemorrhage is second-leading cause of death in trauma Figure 6A: Number of Incidents by Age Number of Incidents by Age

rn bu / re Fi M ry ne i h ac Primary Survey Advanced Trauma Life Support Assess and address life threatening injuries in order ABCDE of trauma
Breathing Identify life threatening deficits in breathing mechanism Simple pneumothorax Tension pneumothorax Massive hemothorax Open pneumothorax (sucking chest wound) Flail chest Circulation Or, identification of shock Definition of shock inadequate organ perfusion Causes of shock
Hemorrhage/hypovolemia Compressive Cardiogenic Neurogenic Sepsis Class I Class II Class III Class IV Blood Loss mL Up to 750 750-1500 1500-2000 >2000
Blood Loss % Up to 15% 15-30% 30-40% >40% Pulse rate <100 >100 >120 >140
Systolic blood pressure Normal Normal Decreased Decreased Pulse pressure Normal Decreased Decreased
Crystalloid Crystalloid and blood Crystalloid and blood Circulation Treatment of shock Direct pressure on external bleeding Initial 2 liter bolus of crystalloid fluid Responders Non-responders Transient responders Definitive management for ongoing hemorrhage
Neurologic deficit Rapid assessment of neurologic status to identify life-threatening injury Pupil size and response Mental status (Glascow coma scale) Motor and sensory exam Glascow Coma Scale 3 15 point scale to assess mental status only Best observed response Modified scale for children GCS 8 is a coma and requires intubation for airway protesction Eye opening
None = 1 To painful stimuli only = 2 To voice only = 3 Spontaneously open = 4 Verbal response None = 1 Incomprehensible sounds = 2 Incomprehensible words = 3 Confused = 4 Oriented = 5 Motor response
None = 1 Decerebrate (extension) posturing = 2 Decorticate (flexion) posturing = 3 Withdraws to pain = 4 Localizes pain = 5 Follows commands = 6 Exposure Head to toe examination of the patient for injury Pitfalls Maintenance of spine precautions Prevention of heat loss
Under cervical collar Back and flanks Adjuncts to the Primary Survey Exams during or after primary survey to aid in identifying life-threatening injuries Chest x-ray Pelvis x-ray Focused abdominal sonogram for trauma (FAST) Diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) Secondary Survey and Definitive Treatment The secondary survey is a complete head to toe evaluation of the patient Adjuncts to the secondary survey include CTs, plain radiographs, blood tests Treatment plans, especially for multiple injuries, based on clinical status and
specific injuries Resuscitation Restoring organ perfusion How much is enough? What are the endpoints of resuscitation? Heart rate, blood pressure, urine output May lead to compensated shock Organ-specific indicators of perfusion ie gastric tonometry Global indicators of perfusion Lactic acid, base deficit Cardiac output, oxygen delivery, oxygen consumption Mixed venous O2 saturation (SvO2) Lactic acid and base deficit Initial BD and serum LA are reliable indicators of the need for ongoing
resuscitation Time to normalization of LA and BD are predictive of MSOF and mortality Damage-control laparotomy A shift from definitive management of abdominal injuries to stabilizing the patient for resuscitation Goals Stop bleeding Control contamination Temporary abdominal closure Critical care and rehabilitation Questions?
