Abstract

Introduction: Patients with life-threatening injuries are a significant concern in the emergency department (ED). These injured people require timely care, as their lives depend on it, and a longer wait can result in organ failure, irreversible damage, and poor survival outcomes.

The purpose of this research is the evaluation, epidemiology, management, diagnosis, treatment, systematization, and the results obtained for the injured in life-threatening cases with trauma, reducing morbidity, disability, and mortality while increasing survival.

Material and Methods. In this retrospective study, we researched and analyzed the data of patients with critical traumatic injuries in DE treated from January-December 2021

Results. During the study period, we analyzed 75,899 ED patients. Of these, 627 cases, or 0.83%, were severely injured and traumatically admitted as a life-threatening traumatic medical emergency in the resuscitation room. Attacked age were males 507 cases or 80.87% and females 120 cases 19.13% and over 16 were 46 cases or 6.67%. The main problem in the admission of the sick was the injured with disorders of consciousness, shock, cardiac, and respiratory failure, as well as issues at the systemic level.

Conclusion. During the study period, we analyzed 75,899 ED patients. Of these, 627 cases, or 0.83%, were severely injured and traumatically admitted as a life-threatening traumatic medical emergency in the resuscitation room. Attacked age were males 507 cases or 80.87% and females 120 cases 19.13% and over 16 were 46 cases or 6.67%. The main problem in the admission of the sick was the injured with disorders of consciousness, shock, cardiac, and respiratory failure, as well as issues at the systemic level.

Also, these critically injured require structured and well-organized care in the DE in the resuscitation room, with educated medical staff, nurses, and support staff trained with the mandatory BLS, BTLS, PHTLS, and ATLS courses, implementing and developing the algorithms standardized for structured care of the critically injured.
