Trauma is the leading cause of death and disability in children over 1 year of age. The most common reason for injury is a motor vehicle crash. Because children have different anatomy and physiology, the management of injuries in children differs is some respects compared with adults. Knowledge of these differences is crucial for emergency physicians to provide expedient and effective care to injured children. Many injuries can be initially managed in a general hospital emergency department (ED), but care of the most seriously injured children requires prompt triage and transportation to a designated pediatric trauma center.
