Acute Care

Acute Care

Disabilities related to injury are serious public health problems because of their impact on quality of life and their economic impact on our health care system. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, through the Division of Injury and Disability Outcomes and Programs coordinates a national public health approach to reducing the impact of injuries by improving trauma care and rehabilitation systems. The program includes the prevention of injury-related disabilities and their secondary conditions.

Acute Care in the United States
  • There were an estimated 40 million injury-related emergency department visits in 2000.
  • The most common causes of injuries seen in emergency departments are from traffic crashes, falls, and violence.
  • Only one fourth of the U.S. population lives in an area served by a trauma care system.
  • Studies of conventional trauma care show that as many as 35% of trauma patient deaths could have been prevented if optimal acute care had been available.
  • Up to 25% of injuries treated in emergency departments are alcohol related.
