Trauma Embolisation – Time Matters!

In an emergency trauma situation, the primary goal is to stabilise the patient, stop the bleeding and minimise the chance of any recurrent hemorrhage – all in the quickest possible time and without risking further injury to the patient. 
Trauma is the leading cause of death worldwide in people below 45 year.1 Uncontrolled hemorrhage accounts for 30-40% of trauma mortality, so rapid identification of the hemorrhage and early intervention is key.
