Pelvic Trauma

Pelvic trauma used to be a significant cause of death, but advances in integrated, inclusive trauma care have resulted in a significant reduction in mortality.

A review into the introduction of a multi-disciplinary approach including: improved triage; early pelvic binder application; early administration of blood and blood products; adherence to algorithmic pathways; screening with focused sonography (FAST) and early operative intervention by specialist pelvic surgeons; saw a reduction in mortality from 20 per cent to 7.7 per cent. Patients now usually die as a result of concomitant injuries rather than isolated pelvic fractures.

Some PaReflectionEd articles have been chosen for CPD (Continued Professional Development) activity, with the provision of a multiple choice examination based on the article. It is free to PaReflectionEd readers who want CPD hours or a record for training and education purposes, but does require a user account to be created on Edoceo Group’s Learning Management System (LMS). The timed quiz has a pass mark of 80%, but multiple attempts are permitted. Following successful completion of the quiz a certificate is awarded which may be submitted as proof of CPD activity.
