Paediatric Major Trauma Centre Update 3 rd September 2014 Giles Haythornthwaite Paediatric Major Trauma Centre Clinical lead
20 per cent higher in-hospital mortality rate for trauma patients in England compared to the US. UNICEF “In every single industrialized country, injury has now become the leading killer of 1 to 14 year-olds - accounting for almost 40 per cent of deaths in that age group.” In 2007, NCEPOD concluded that 60 per cent of major trauma patients received a standard of care that was ‘less than good practice’. National Context.
But what is a Major Trauma Patient? DROWNING BRAIN or SKULL injuries ASPHYXIA FEMUR and PELVIS Fractures Internal injuries to THORAX or ABDOMEN NERVE injury SPINE Cord Injury, fracture, dislocation Open LIMB or bilateral fractures FROSTBITE MAJOR DEGLOVING INJURY
Major Trauma challenge Major Trauma as a disease does not respect clinical specialties or anatomical boundaries. Major Trauma patients are acutely sick with a high mortality. Treatment often is required in a time critical way.
The principles to improve care. Build functionally teams which work across clinical boundaries. Senior (consultant) timely decision making. Access to rapid diagnostics. Access to rapid treatment – Blood – Theatre – Supportive care (intensive care) Rehabilitation
Criteria for triggering major trauma call
Child Maltreatment Recognition. Investigation and Resuscitation run parallel. Scrutiny of medical management.
What have we got to be ready for? Time critical head injuries Massive haemorrhage Chest trauma Abdominal trauma Pelvic fracture Femoral fracture Amputation

Governance Severn Network Children’s Hospital Governance PMTC Lead Peninsular Network Peer review Trauma team leader ‘hot’ debrief Mortality and morbidity meeting PMT Network Lead Child death review process Paediatric Trauma Business/Governance Children’s Hospital Executive Trust Governance
M&M Already strong Critical care M&M including PICU and CED. Children’s hospital attendance at Severn network M&M. Plan Paediatric Major trauma M&M quarterly – One joint with Severn Adults MTC – One Joint with Peninsular MTC Geared to maximises learning. 1 st M&M 32 clinicians over 50% consultants.
What about the HIT? Gives opportunity to engage with a wider group. – Particularly injury prevention and community services. Research and long term strategy. – Think differently. – Increase collaborations. Sharing of demographic and injury data. Feedback individual narratives to help prevention. Link community and hospital rehab more closely.
