Cardiovascular trauma.


Cardiac trauma affects people of all ages from all walks of life. The exact incidence of cardiac trauma is unknown because many individuals die before ever reaching a medical facility for treatment. Reduction in the time from cardiac injury to definitive treatment with continued improvement in rapid emergency transport systems will result in a lower mortality rate. The challenge for nursing is to reduce mortality of victims of cardiac trauma further with prompt nursing diagnosis and effective nursing interventions.
