Abdominal trauma is an injury to the abdomen. It may be blunt or penetrating and may involve damage to the abdominal organs. Signs and symptoms include abdominal pain, tenderness, rigidity, and bruising of the external abdomen. Abdominal trauma presents a risk of severe blood loss and infection. Diagnosis may involve ultrasonography, computed tomography, and peritoneal lavage, and treatment may involve surgery. Abdominal trauma is divided into blunt and penetrating types. While Penetrating abdominal trauma (PAT) is usually diagnosed based on clinical signs, blunt abdominal trauma is more likely to be missed because clinical signs are less obvious. Blunt injuries predominate in rural areas, while penetrating ones are more frequent in urban settings. Penetrating trauma is further subdivided into stab wounds and bullet wounds, which have different treatments.
Trauma is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the under-thirty eight age group in the developed world. There are two disabled survivors of trauma for every trauma death, resulting in immense physical, psychological and financial costs. Efforts to treat this 'epidemic' in an organized way have developed during the last two decades and trauma scoring systems have evolved alongside systems of trauma management. In devising and evaluating new systems to deal with victims of trauma, a means of assessing outcome is essential. One role for a scoring system is to act as an audit or outcome measurement tool. Using a scoring instrument allows comparison between different treatment methods or different centers while correcting for any difference in the severity of injuries treated. The measurement of injury severity has been a widely discussed and commonly practiced methodology for quite some time now. It is a possible tool to determine the possible prognosis, treatment outcomes in trauma patients, assessing the cost of injuries and also in incidents involving triage.
A summary of the radiological tools available for diagnosing traumatized patients, logically linking the mechanics of trauma and the resulting injuries. The book reviews widely accepted trauma classifications, explains relevant examination methods, and summarizes the typical trauma patterns that can be expected with each imaging modality. The authors give decision pathways based on their experience as well as on recent scientific results. The result is a bridge between the disciplines cooperating in hospitals in the treatment of acutely injured patients. This book summarizes the radiological tools available for diagnosing traumatized patients. One of the major benefits of the book is the logical chain between mechanics of trauma and the resulting injuries. It reviews widely accepted trauma classifications, explains relevant examination methods, and summarizes the typical trauma patterns that can be expected with each imaging modality. The authors give decision pathways based on their experience as well as on recent scientific results. The book thus builds a bridge between the disciplines cooperating in hospitals in the treatment of acutely injured patients.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Psychological trauma is a type of damage to the psyche that occurs as a result of a traumatic event. When that trauma leads to posttraumatic stress disorder, damage may involve physical changes inside the brain and to brain chemistry, which damage the person's ability to adequately cope with stress. A traumatic event involves a single experience, or an enduring or repeating event or events, that completely overwhelm the individual's ability to cope or integrate the ideas and emotions involved with that experience.
The present work starts out from the premise that it is possible to represent the Holocaust in art and that, moreover, it is necessary to do so in order to preserve the memory of the historical event by means other than historical sources. My framework of analysis is based on the premise that Holocaust cinema is, first and foremost, a traumatic cinema: a body of films whose underlying motif is the representation of trauma, and more precisely, the way in which the victims of the Holocaust relate to the trauma they were subject to. Specifically, by employing the Freudian concepts of "acting out trauma" and "working through trauma", seen as modes of relating to one's painful past, my intention was that of seeing how the various Holocaust films analysed represent the traumatic dimension of individual and collective experience. The book also takes into consideration the issue of the cinematic representations of the Holocaust between history and memory, arguing that their diversity ranges between non-epistemic knowledge and claims of knowledge through representation.
Wie Kinder lernen können, traumatische Erfahrungen zu verarbeiten und neuen Lebensmut zu entwickeln, und wie Eltern und Erzieher ihnen dabei helfen können.Kinder, die ein traumatisches Erlebnis hatten, sind in ihrem Grundvertrauen in sich und in die Welt erschüttert. Ob Kinder einen Unfall erlebt oder einen Elternteil verloren haben, ob sie sexuell missbraucht oder in der Schule gemobbt werden, ob sie mit Gewalt oder einer Naturkatastrophe konfrontiert wurden - sie werden dieses Erlebnis nicht so einfach wegstecken können. Doch Eltern sind oft ratlos, wie sie ihren Kindern helfen können. Dieses Buch klärt Eltern darüber auf, was Trauma bedeutet, mitwelchen Symptomen zu rechnen ist und wie man traumatisierte Kinder bei der Heilung unterstützen kann. Nicht jedes Kind reagiert gleich. Manche Kinder entwickeln Ängste, andere reagieren mit Rückzug und Verleugnung, wieder andere werden aggressiv oder verletzen sich selbst. Eltern und Erzieher müssen lernen, die Bedürfnisse der Kinder zu erkennen und auf sie einzugehen. Viele praktische Tipps zeigen, wie eine individuell abgestimmte Begleitung des traumatisierten Kindes aussehen und wie das Selbstvertrauen der Kinder gestärkt werden kann. Einige spezielle Situationen wie Verlust, sexuelle Gewalt, Mobbing, Trennung und Umzug werden gesondert behandelt.Dr. Jo-Jacqueline Eckardt ist Sozialarbeiterin mit US-Diplom. Seit 2001 lebt sie in Berlin und arbeitet mit ADS-Kindern. Sie entwickelte das Programm Das ADS-Elterntraining. Ein 28-Tage-Programm"."
This user-friendly DVD-ROM is a remarkable learning tool for orthopaedists, radiologists, and trainees, and clinicians involved in diagnosing trauma in the emergency room. With over 1,600 radiographs, the program opens by covering the most important skeletal landmarks in normal x-rays. It then presents the most important pathologic findings in a training format.The main feature of this DVD-ROM is a simulation of the diagnostic process at the light box. The simulation provides hundreds of cases that challenge the viewer to either determine that the image is normal or that it in fact shows signs of trauma. The program provides valuable feedback on responses.System requirements:PC with Pentium-compatible processor 650 Mhz (1.5 GHz recommended) 128 MB RAM (512 MB recommended) 32-bit graphics (True-color) resolution 1024x768 pixels (1280x1024 recommended) 10MB free hard disc storage space (3GB for full installation) DVD drive mouseWindows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7.
