Abstract

Pediatric multiple trauma victims present a unique set of problems to the emergency physician, pediatrician, or surgeon. Children rarely sustain lethal injury; delayed recognition and inappropriate management of the common problems encountered in the pediatric trauma patient can lead to a poor outcome.
This study was designed as a retrospective descriptive review of medical records of 289 injured children. All children were admitted in age from 1 to 15 years to the Republican Research Center of Emergency Medicine (Uzbekistan) and its branches during 2000-2009.

Caring for pediatric trauma patients requires an understanding of the distinct anatomy and pathophysiology of the pediatric population. Initial evaluation, management, and resuscitation require a multidisciplinary approach including trauma surgeons, anesthesiologists, and pediatric intensive care physicians.
