Monday, October 17 is World Trauma Day

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), injury kills more people every year than HIV, TB and malaria combined, and the overwhelming majority of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Timely emergency care saves lives: if fatality rates from severe injury were the same in low- and middle-resource countries as in high-resource countries, nearly 2 million lives could be saved every year. In recognition of World Trauma Day, OPENPediatrics presents a collection of trauma resources from our library, including Initial Trauma Evaluation, by Dr. David Mooney.

 

 

In addition to Dr. Mooney's video, the following trauma resources are also available on OPENPediatrics:

 

Critical Care

 

Burn Care

 

Non-Accidental Trauma
