BACKGROUND: Increased knowledge of the temporal patterns in the distribution of trauma admissions could be beneficial to staffing and resource allocation efforts. However, little work has been done to understand how this distribution varies based on patient acuity, trauma mechanism or need for intervention. We hypothesize that temporal patterns exist in the distribution of trauma admissions, and that deep patterns exist when traumas are analyzed by their type and severity. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a cross-sectional observational study of adult patient flow at a level one trauma center over three years, 7/1/2013-6/30/2016...

Cervical spine trauma is a relatively rare but catastrophic event in sports. These critical situations depend on sports medicine personnel understanding every aspect of sideline care to ensure a safe and successful evaluation. This involves thorough preparation, vigilant observation of the sporting event to detect the possible mechanism of injury, and initiation of the appropriate action plan when a potentially catastrophic injury is suspected. Sideline management of cervical spine trauma requires the appropriate primary survey, with spine stabilization if necessary, secondary survey for concomitant injury, and, potentially, initiation of full spine stabilization with a spine board...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated hip fracture (IHF) is a common injury in the elderly after a fall. However, there is limited study on elderly IHF patients' subsequent hospitalization for a new injury, that is, trauma-related recidivism. METHODS: A retrospective review of the trauma registry at an ACS level I trauma center was performed for all elderly (age ≥ 65 y) blunt trauma patients admitted between 2007 and 2017, with a focus on IHF patients. IHF was defined as a fracture of the femoral head, neck, and/or trochanteric region without any other injuries except minor soft tissue trauma after a fall...

BACKGROUND: Major haemorrhage is a leading cause of mortality following major trauma. Increasingly, Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) in the United Kingdom provide pre-hospital transfusion with blood products, although the evidence to support this is equivocal. This study compares mortality for patients with suspected traumatic haemorrhage transfused with pre-hospital packed red blood cells (PRBC) compared to crystalloid. METHODS: A single centre retrospective observational cohort study between 1 January 2010 and 1 February 2015...

This review examines risks that accompany child and adolescent participation in downhill skiing. Falls and non-collision events were the most common mechanism of injury, but significant data implicate head injuries, blunt abdominal trauma, and spinal trauma as the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in this population. School-aged children and youth (7-14 years) are more likely to sustain an injury, compared to children (0-6 years) and older teenagers (15-17 years). Knee injuries were the most common injury, reported as 10...

Introduction: Hemorrhage is one of the leading causes of death in trauma victims. Historically, paramedics have not had access to medications that specifically target the reversal of trauma-induced coagulopathies. The California Prehospital Antifibrinolytic Therapy (Cal-PAT) study seeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tranexamic acid (TXA) use in the civilian prehospital setting in cases of traumatic hemorrhagic shock. Methods: The Cal-PAT study is a multi-centered, prospective, observational cohort study with a retrospective comparison...
