Trauma is a leading cause of disability, morbidity and mortality in Australia, with about 12 000 deaths and 460 000 hospitalisations attributed to trauma annually (AIHW 2019).

Not only does trauma have severe consequences for the economy; it also has many ongoing effects for the individual.

What is Polytrauma?

The term ‘polytrauma’ (or ‘multi-trauma’) has no universal classification or definition. However, it is generally used to refer to patients whose injuries:

  • Affect several body regions;
  • Compromise physiology; and
  • May potentially cause dysfunction to uninjured organs.
