So you think you know how to handle pediatric solid organ injuries? In this Traumacast, we hear from Drs. Ian Mitchell, Regan Williams, Judith Hagedorn, and Bindi Naik-Mathuria from the Pediatric Trauma Society (PTS) about updates to practice management guidelines for pediatric solid organ injury. The discussion is geared toward those that might initially manage a pediatric patient but also those "adult” hospitals caring for kids ages 15 and up.
