Abstract

Trauma continues to be the leading cause of death in children over one year of age despite advances in treatment and preventive measures (1). Anatomic, physiologic, and intellectual differences between children and adults result in different injury patterns, as well as variations in the algorithms for evaluation andmanagement of trauma. This chapter highlights the differences between injured children and adults, and how these variations affect management of the injured child.
