Summary

Injuries cause more than half of all childhood deaths and a large proportion of pediatric trauma care is provided by non-pediatric specialists. This book provides an update of current practice, backed by evidence-based recommendations, in four sections: 1) Trauma systems for children, including epidemiology, organization of pediatric trauma care, disaster planning and systems for mass pediatric casualties and community injury prevention programs. 2) General principles of resuscitation and supportive care. 3) Specific injuries commonly seen in children, including from child abuse. 4) Rehabilitation, communication, long-term outcomes and performance improvement methods to monitor outcomes.
