Summary

This study will focus on collecting coded patient data from pediatric traumas prospectively. Data will be collected to assess inclusion of patients that fit the inclusion criteria of <18 years old with an elevated shock index based on age (Form A). There will also be a post-resuscitation data collection to examine products given to pediatric patients with an elevated shock index (Form B).
These data collection forms will help us determine the impact on primary outcomes of crystalloid administration volume and timing prior to blood products in children presenting in shock following trauma.
We will assess patient factors that predict need for early transfusion of blood products in pediatric trauma patients presenting in shock. We will also relate primary outcomes to ratio of blood products in pediatric trauma patients in shock who are transfused. This study will help define variability in pediatric trauma fluid and blood resuscitation practices between centers.
