  • (1888PressRelease) October 17, 2012 - There would be so many questions going on in your mind about what is trauma and is it a very big concern that an entire day worldwide is reserved for this event.

    Let us share a fact with you.
    5.8 million People lose their lives every year globally due to injury. These injuries could be road accidents, violence, suicides or homicides.

    This figure should be enough to tell you how big the problem is and why there is an urgent need to spread awareness. Though we could avoid injuries but the real concern is that many people die because of non availability of pre hospital care. So World Trauma day is celebrated every year to spread the word to make people aware and bring the mortality figure down.

    WHO, the International Association for Trauma Surgery and Intensive Care and the International Society of Surgery are the mentors in this area. They had released Guidelines for trauma quality improvement programmes in June 2009. Through this publication how to improve the trauma care, the techniques to be employed are mentioned. Even a need for trauma care checklist was highlighted in an expert meeting held at Rio de Janeiro in 2009 which was attended by delegates of 16 countries.

    medeCure along with WHO is a firm believer that effective and systematic management of trauma patients can save lives. Think that with proper awareness we would be able to save about 2 million people from the clutches of death.

    So, take a pledge and indulge in various activities carried out by the NGOs and the govt. agencies and contribute to make the planet earth a better and safer place to live.
