The faculty in Trauma Critical Care is an interdisciplinary team of experts in the management of critically ill and injured patients. They are available 24 hours a day for the people with conditions such as adult respiratory distress syndromenecrotizing fasciitissepsis, and multiple organ failure, etc. Patients who require a high level of monitoring and intervention either after trauma or during critical illness can benefit from Shock Trauma's critical care resources. The critical care faculty has immediate access to a wide array of sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic equipment. Patient care areas are staffed by nurses with specialized training in critical care. It includes a team of doctors specialising in intensive care medicine, nurses, medical engineers and healthcare science staff.

Doctors working in intensive care medicine (ICM) manage critically ill patients with, at risk of, or recovering from, potentially life-threatening failure of any of the body’s organ systems. The intensive care unit care of the trauma patient differs from that of other intensive care unit patients in many ways, one of the most important being the need to continuously integrate operative and nonoperative therapy. Although progress in the care of the injured has been made, death due to uncontrolled bleedingsevere head injury, or the development of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome remains all too common in this patient population. Common partner specialties include anaesthesia, acute internal medicineemergency medicinerenal medicine and respiratory medicine.

Trauma Nurses treat patients in a state of emergency, and handle urgent situations where the cause of injury or disease isn’t yet known. Modern inpatient trauma care relies on a multitude of interrelated surgical and medical specialties, diagnostic teststherapeutic interventions, and allied health services to reduce mortality and morbidity from severe injuries. The complexity of this care can often overwhelm the ability of the primary medical team to ensure that the care is timely, well organised, and efficient. They can work in hospital emergency rooms and other chaotic environments, and often need to coordinate with doctors, family members and other nurses.

Sports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities or exercising. The leading cause of death involving sports-related injuries, although rare, is brain injuries. When injured the two main systems affected are the nervous and vascular systems. The origins in the body where numbness and tingling occurs upon sports injuries are usually the first signs of the body telling that the body was impacted.

Psychological trauma is a type of damage to the mind that occurs as a result of a severely distressing event. Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one's ability to cope, or integrate the emotions involved with that experience. Using a coordinated approach the team uses their expertise managing physicalpsychological and behavioural problems associated with both acute and chronic illnesses.

Acute care surgery is defined as the urgent assessment and treatment of nontrauma general surgical emergencies involving adults. More specifically, this model of health care delivery surrounds the optimal treatment of intra-abdominal surgical crises. Acute surgical emergencies often represent the most common reason for hospital admission. These conditions include, but are not limited to, acute appendicitis, cholecystitis, diverticulitis, pancreatitis, intestinal obstruction, intestinal ischemia, intra-abdominal sepsis, incarcerated hernias and perforated viscous.

Trauma patients are cared for by most anaesthesiologists as part of their "on call" responsibilities. When anaesthesiologists are part of a trauma team they play an important role by enabling effective airway management and resuscitation, managing fluids such as blood transfusions and administering anaesthetics. Anaesthesiologists also manage a patient’s vital life functions during a trauma situation to allow surgeons to focus on and treat the patient’s cause of injury.Patients can be unstable due to brain injury or severe bleeding, and can change condition quickly as a result of their injuries. Trauma anaesthesiologists must have a broad knowledge of the specialty and of medicine in general and must be prepared to act quickly and creatively.

The overall responsibility for trauma care falls under the general surgery. Some general surgeons obtain advanced training in this field and specialty certification surgical critical care. General surgeons must be able to deal initially with almost any surgical emergency. Often, they are the first port of call to critically ill or gravely injured patients, and must perform a variety of procedures to stabilize such patients, such as thoracotomycricothyroidotomycompartment fasciotomies and or thoracotomy to stanch bleeding. They are also called upon to staff surgical intensive care units or trauma intensive care units.

There are two main categories of burn surgeryacute and reconstructiveAcute burn care occurs immediately after the injury. It is delivered by a team of trauma surgeons.  Complex burns often require consultation with plastic surgeons, which assist with the inpatient and outpatient management of these cases. Large burns, or burns of critical body areas, should be treated at a verified burn centre, such as the Trauma Burn Centre. Many smaller burns can be treated with outpatient options. Some patients may need reconstructive burn surgery after the initial burn wounds have healed. This type of care is usually provided by a plastic surgeon. The goals of reconstructive burn surgery are to improve both the function and the cosmetic appearance of burn scars. This involves altering scar tissue, with both non-operative and operative treatment.

Emergency Radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology that specializes in the diagnosis of the acutely ill or traumatized patient in the Emergency Department setting. multiple imaging modalities, including multi-detector CT, MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray are used. Advanced trauma life support is the standard method for the initial management of severely injured patients. A definitive diagnosis is not necessary to treat the patient initially. The most important point to remember is that no harm should be done to the patient during treatment.

Emergency departments will have a mass casualty incident protocol which they initiate as soon as they are notified of an MCI in their community. They will have preparations in place to receive a massive number of casualties, like calling in more staff, pulling extra and spare equipment out of storage, and clearing non-acute patients out of the hospital. Trauma centres have a multitude of levels ranging from level 1 all the way to level 5. Each level varying in different responsibilities and resources provided.

Paediatric plastic surgery is plastic surgery performed on children. Its procedures are most often conducted for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body that are the result of congenital defectsdevelopmental abnormalitiestraumainfectiontumours or disease. While reconstructive surgery is most often undertaken to regain normal motor function or prevent current or future health problems, aesthetics is also considered by the surgical team.

Skin cancer reconstructive surgery provides cosmetic and functional improvement to the affected area and the scars that invariably result from surgery. There are three major types of skin cancer. Basal cell carcinomasquamous cell carcinoma, and Melanoma skin cancer. If caught in their early stages, a surgeon can easily remove these three types of skin cancer, leaving only small scars. However, when the surgeon must remove advanced skin cancer, deformities can result. Unfortunately, removal of skin cancers often occurs on a cosmetically sensitive area such as the face. Skin cancer reconstructive surgery can reduce and obscure surgical scars for a more pleasing result.

The procedures, techniques, and principles of cosmetic surgery are entirely focused on enhancing a patient’s appearance. Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion are the key goals. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck, and body. Because the treated areas function properly, cosmetic surgery is elective. Cosmetic surgery is practiced by doctors from a variety of medical fields, including plastic surgeons.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS or OMFS) specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a regional specialist surgeon treating the entire craniomaxillofacial complexanatomical area of the mouth, jaws, face, and skull, as well as associated structures. Depending upon the jurisdiction, maxillofacial surgeons may require training in dentistrysurgery, and general medicine; training and qualification in medicine may be undertaken optionally even if not required. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is widely recognized as one of the specialties of dentistry. In many countries, however, maxillofacial surgery is a medical specialty requiring both medical and dental degrees.

Trauma and orthopaedic surgeons diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions of the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones and joints and their associated structures that enable movement - ligamentstendonsmuscles and nervesTrauma and orthopaedic surgery is often abbreviated to T&O surgery. Trauma can range from low energy fractures (often in elderly patients) to multiple injuries such as those caused by a road traffic accident. Bone and joint infection can also require emergency admission and treatment.  T&O surgeons work with patients of all ages from babies to elderly people.

Neurosurgeons diagnose, assess and perform surgery to treat disorders of the nervous system. They operate on the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system which can involve any area of the body. Neurosurgeons may work with patients of all ages from premature babies to elderly people. Some conditions are immediately life-threatening although chronic debilitating conditions are also treated. Neurosurgery is a very challenging surgical specialty where techniques and technologies are constantly developing. Minimally-invasive procedures using surgical microscopes and endoscopes are increasingly used which achieve comparable or better results than open surgery. The benefits to the patient include less pain; faster recover time and minimal scarring.
