Abstract

Trauma-related injuries are the leading cause of death in children older than 1 year old. Injuries are responsible for approximately 20,000 deaths in children a year in the United States [1]. Pediatric trauma is twofold as prevalent in boys than girls across all ages [2]. Pediatric injuries typically occur from falls and bicycle and motor vehicle accidents. These types of injuries typically result in a blunt trauma, which account for 80-90 % of all pediatric traumas. Incidence of penetrating trauma secondary to assault increases in teenage boys [2].
