PostSubject: What is a Trauma?   Mon Jul 11, 2016 6:15 pm

In general, traumatic injuries are those that significantly impair the functioning of at least one part of the body. They are usually also life threatening, or at least run the risk of death as a possible outcome, and typically happen as a result of accident or act of violence. As a result, medical professionals often reserve the description “traumatic” for injuries that are the most serious or the most complicated to solve. A lot of things can qualify, but conditions that usually don’t include illnesses and diseases that progress over time; superficial wounds; and complications or conditions that were expected, as in a surgery.
