Trauma is a global problem defined as any injury caused by a transfer of energy to the body. It is ranked as the fourth leading cause of death worldwide and is the number one cause of death among people 1 to 44 years of age in the United States (CDC, 2014). In this fourth edition of the basic trauma course, current evidence-based practice has been updated as well as the addition of a chapter covering bariatric trauma. The goal of this course is to provide comprehensive content on nursing trauma care, including mechanisms of injury, common injuries seen, and resuscitation and management of injured patients. The course serves as a reference for trauma registered nurses working in the emergency room, trauma intensive care units, and for those practicing in nontrauma clinical areas who desire to know more about trauma care. The course also serves as a preparation for trauma nursing certification. Course content includes basic concepts of trauma systems, triage, initial assessment of pediatric and adult trauma, shock, trauma to specific anatomic regions, burn and cold injuries, maternal and pediatric trauma, elder trauma, bariatric trauma, psychosocial aspects of trauma care, disaster management, and nursing care of the recovering trauma patient.
