Do any of you working at Trauma Centers have a set of criteria or guideline
for which dog attack situations result in activation of your trauma team?
It is our experience that these patients, while at times severely injured
do not fit neatly into mechanism or physiologic criteria. Thank you in
advance for sharing your experience.
