This article focuses on the importance of the principles and concepts of quality trauma care, citing the "golden hour" and ATLS as providing a consistent guideline of care. The article discusses the key components in the primary survey through the resuscitation phase. It systematically reviews the secondary survey and discusses specific caveats in caring for the pediatric trauma patient. This article is thorough and would serve as an excellent reference for clinical staff.
