Trauma services involve care for patients with acute injuries, both large and small, on an emergency basis.

These injuries can result from a fall, accident or a fight and include stab wounds, gunshot wounds, injuries to organs, major orthopedic injuries to bones, spinal injuries and vascular injuries. Physicians undergo specialized training for treating trauma patients. Our anesthesiologists provide trauma anesthesia services to patients who come to the hospital on an emergency basis with a trauma injury. Trauma anesthesia requires specialized care for introducing lines to administer fluids and complex airway management in the administration of anesthesia services.
