THINKING BEYOND BLEEDING

You are a member of the resuscitation team looking after a shocked blunt polytrauma patient. The patient is intubated and ventilated, splinted, and is receiving a massive intravenous blood product transfusion. To your surprise, the Whole Body CT scan fails to show any active haemorrhage. This talk describes the common and rarer causes of hypotension following trauma and highlights how a meticulous history and primary survey examination may often reveal the cause before imaging.
