Introduction

Trauma is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children. The evaluation and resuscitation of the pediatric trauma patient is vitally important and sets the tone, intensity and pace of subsequent care. Although the overall process is similar to adults, there are unique anatomic, physiologic, developmental and social characteristics of children that must be accounted for during the resuscitation phase.
