The injury patterns, age distribution, and outcome of pediatric patients (age<15 years) treated in an « adult » trauma center is incompletely defined.
A total of 1115 pediatric trauma patients (9.6% total trauma admissions) treated over a 6-year period in a level I suburban trauma center without a pediatric trauma service or a pediatric surgeon were reviewed for age distribution; injury mechanism, injury pattern, and injury severity; surgical procedures; disposition; and mortality.
All charts were subject to internal and external peer review, including five site surveys.
Resuscitation, surgery, critical care, and stepdown management were provided by a trauma team led by in-house attending trauma surgeons (mean PGY=20).
