Multi-Person Trauma Kit and Supplies
Physical trauma refers to a physical injury. A body wound or shock produced by sudden physical injury, as from accident, injury, or impact.
Blunt trauma is the leading cause of traumatic death in the United States, of which most cases of blunt trauma are caused by motor vehicle accidents. While falling accidents, another form of blunt trauma, is the second most common cause of traumatic death.
In cases of car accidents, or where a patient has had some form of accelerated impact, the likelihood is that there will be progressive damage to internal organs, as well as the fracturing of bones, both of which are dealt with by splinting fractures and controlling external bleeding.
A trauma patient is someone who has suffered serious and life-threatening physical injury potentially resulting in secondary complications such as shock, respiratory failure and death.
The availability of trauma supplies can be critical in an emergency situation.
In a pre-hospitalization
setting, also called the "field", emergency medical technicians, paramedics, specialized nurses, and less trained providers known as "first responders" use trauma supplies, S.T.A.R.T techniques and stabilization techniques to improve the chances of an accident patient surviving the ambulance trip to the hospital.
START is an acronym for Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment, and is defined as being a method that first responders use to effectively and efficiently evaluate all of the victims during a mass casualty incident.
The first-arriving medical personnel or First Responders will categorize the victims by the severity of their injury and provide initial first aid treatment. The availability of a medical kit is critical.
Shock and bleeding must be addressed immediately.
Having the proper equipment kit on hand is vital. Research has shown that deaths from physical trauma decline where there are organized trauma systems and a trauma kit in place.
Manufacturing facilities, office buildings, sports complexes and industrial contractors should have a fully equipped kit to treat accident victims as soon as possible.
