Road accidents are the primary killer in India, and brain injury is the cause of most casualties. Other injuries accompany too, which need the attention with equal urgency. After a severe accident in which the patient has multiple organ injuries, it is difficult for the patient to move from one hospital to another for different treatments and surgeries. Therefore, they need to admit to a trauma care management center for overall emergency medical care. Polytrauma, unlike other minor accidents and diseases, is typical when it comes to diagnosis. Its effect on different organs is unpredictable, and it is not always easy to link symptoms with particular body locations.
The consequences of a severe accident go beyond few painful injuries. It can affect the person’s life significantly with permanent deformities, dysfunction, and financial losses. Therefore, primary care is critical in assessing the diagnosis process and understanding the injury process thoroughly.
