Multiple Trauma Management

When a person has been catastrophically injured, it is not uncommon to require multiple trauma management. This is mainly defined as damage done to an individual’s body from or by exchange with environmental energy that the body is unable to withstand. The deaths caused each year from multiple traumas are estimated to be over one hundred thousand. Often, catastrophic traumas result in traumatic brain injuries. California residents are fortunate to have a bevy of foundations, departments, and companies with the distressed in mind. Gateway Health Management is one such entity.

The initial evaluation of people who sustain these injuries is to taken to provide a primary survey of all visible or noticeable injuries, such as bleeding or broken bones. This initial step is important in multiple trauma management, and we make it our mission to assist you in dealing with the aftermath. The next step is resuscitation, followed by the secondary survey, then definitive treatment.

The main types of trauma that are high transfer and, in some cases, happen on a daily basis include:

  • Motorcycle or automobile accidents
  • Falls of over 20 feet
  • Ejected motorists
  • Accidents where a pedestrian is hit by an automobile
  • Moving vehicle acceleration of over 20 miles per hour
