Special Issue Information
Trauma is one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality in the pediatric population. Accurate and timely diagnosis and treatment of trauma are paramount. In order to achieve this, a detailed medical history and physical examination, augmented by appropriate laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging, is necessary. Radiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging are used to confirm the diagnosis; however, radiation exposure and the requirement for procedural sedation also make these techniques less than desirable. Several prediction rules have been incorporated into pediatric emergency care, in order to avoid unnecessary diagnostic imaging. In addition, ultrasonography has recently began to play an important role in diagnosing pediatric trauma. Last, but not least, injury prevention and education for trainees are essential segments of pediatric emergency care. For instance, the implementation of the national action plan for child injury prevention in the US has decreased mortality in pediatric trauma patients. The aim and scope of this Special Issue is to broaden the insight into pediatric trauma care. This Special Issue addresses a wide variety of topics that surround pediatric trauma, including pre-hospital care, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and education . We hope that the research in this issue, which has developed novel innovations and scientific advances, will improve pediatric trauma care.
