Example text

Such examinations can be interspersed into the secondary survey at appropriate times. Special procedures, such as specific radiographic evaluations and laboratory studies, also are performed at this time. Complete patient evaluation requires repeated physical examinations. History Every complete medical assessment includes a history of the mechanism of injury. Often, such a history cannot be obtained from a patient who has sustained trauma; therefore, prehospital personnel and family must be consulted to obtain information that can enhance the understanding of the patient’s physiologic state.

Bleeding The source of bleeding should be identified as either external or internal. External hemorrhage is identified and controlled during the primary survey. Rapid, external blood loss is managed by direct manual pressure on the wound. Tourniquets are effective in massive exsanguination from an extremity, but carry a risk of ischemic injury to that extremity and should only be used when direct pressure is not effective. The use of hemostats can result in damage to nerves and veins. The major areas of internal hemorrhage are the chest, abdomen, retroperitoneum, pelvis, and long bones.

Any injury noted in Step Two or mechanism identified in Step Three triggers a “yes” response. ¶ Age <15 years. ** Intrusion refers to interior compartment intrusion, as opposed to deformation which refers to exterior damage. †† Includes pedestrians or bicyclists thrown or run over by a motor vehicle or those with estimated impact >20 mph with a motor vehicle. §§ Local or regional protocols should be used to determine the most appropriate level of trauma center within the defined trauma system; need not be the highest-level trauma center.
