Traumatic injury is a term which refers to physical injuries of sudden onset and severity which require immediate medical attention. The insult may cause systemic shock called “shock trauma”, and may require immediate resuscitation and interventions to save life and limb. Traumatic injuries may affect many parts of the body, including the brain, the extremities and internal organs. The severity of injuries can range from minor to life-threatening. Trauma obviously affects the patient physically, but it can have lasting effects on the patient and those close to the patient emotionally.
