Emergency Treatment of Trauma:


Stabilization of the Trauma Patient

Respiratory Complications of Trauma

 Trauma Triad of Death: Hypothermia, Acidosis and Coagulopathy


Dr. Lori S. Waddell, DVM, DACVECC

University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine


Stabilization of the Trauma Patient - This lecture will cover triage, stabilization, and common complications in the dog and cat including head trauma. Fluid therapy in trauma cases will be emphasized.


Respiratory Complications of Trauma - There are a variety of respiratory complications that can occur secondary to trauma. These include hypoxia secondary to ventilation/perfusion mismatch and shunting from pulmonary contusions, atelectasis, pneumothorax or hemothorax, hypoventilation due to pleural space disease, pain from rib fractures and flail chest segments, and neurologic causes of hypoventilation. The second lecture will cover patient monitoring, diagnostics, and treatment of these complications.


Trauma Triad of Death - Understanding the individual components of the "trauma triad of death" (acidosis, hypothermia and coagulopathy) and the pathophysiology creating the self-perpetuating cycle is essential for veterinarians who manage trauma patients. In addition to reviewing the physiology of the trauma triad, this third lecture will review appropriate interventions that help to prevent or slow its progression.
