Trauma is the leading cause of death in those aged 1—44 years and the third leading cause of death for all age groups. This section aims to discuss the role of regional anesthesia within the overall framework of pain management in trauma, explore several examples of where regional anesthesia may affect outcomes in specific injuries, and briefly address the issue of acute compartment syndrome in the context of neuraxial and peripheral nerve blockade. The management of pain in the acutely injured patient can be challenging. Resuscitation and the assessment and treatment of life-threatening injuries are the first priorities in the trauma patient, and provision of adequate analgesia must frequently be delayed until the patient is stable. However, there is mounting evidence that the pain associated with injury is often undertreated oligoanalgesia. There are several barriers to effective analgesia for trauma patients.

Clinical Cases in Anesthesia - 3rd Edition
Trauma Cases and Reviews is an open access peer reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of multiple injury severity causing substantial damage and it's quick management in transport and initial estimation of extent of injuries to codify a course of treatment, in order to counter loss of life. Journal publishes Original Research Articles, Reviews, Cases, Clinical Studies and Commentaries focusing on initial effective diagnosis techniques, prevention and management of injuries and prognosis. All the articles pass through a dual review process in which two independent review comments followed by editor decision will be considered to publish the article. Journal ensures the maintenance of its standards by publishing the high quality, original and new advances in its field. Title: Trauma Cases and Reviews. ISSN: Editor-in-chief: William Min.
Clinical Cases in Anesthesia
An improved understanding of the pathophysiology of combat trauma has evolved over the past decade and has helped guide the anesthetic care of the trauma patient requiring surgical intervention. Trauma anesthesia begins before patient arrival with warming of the operating room, preparation of anesthetic medications and routine anesthetic machine checks. Induction of anesthesia must account for potential hemodynamic instability and intubation must consider airway trauma. Maintenance of anesthesia is accomplished with anesthetic gas, intravenous infusions or a combination of both.
David J. Krodel, Edward A. FORMATION of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema has been observed after a variety of inciting events, including upper airway obstruction negative pressure pulmonary edema [NPPE] , 1 acute lung injury, 2 anaphylaxis, 3 fluid maldistribution, 4 and severe central nervous system trauma neurogenic pulmonary edema. Patients with severe postoperative noncardiogenic pulmonary edema who require mechanical ventilation should be ventilated with a low-tidal volume, 6 administration of positive end-expiratory pressure, and low plateau airway pressures.
