Abstract [en]

Background: Every two seconds a person dies by the result of a trauma. The trauma teams' initial assessment is a structured and systematic concept, where the treaters in the acute care setting are involved in excluding life-threatening conditions and to do an accurate medical examination of the patient. The trauma resuscitation is a fast encounter between the patient and the trauma team. Patients is often affected by the acute event when they lose control over their own situation.

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe the patient experience of the trauma resuscitation at the emergency department.

Method: A literature review has been made of 5 qualitative and 5 quantitative articles. Articles were analyzed by searching for similarities and differences. The analyzed articles were published between 2004-2015.

Results: The result showed that patients had unique needs such as; be treated like individuals and be cared for by competent personnel. The results also showed the importance of sufficient information on examination and treatment. The patient could feel either insecure or cared for in the trauma resuscitation depending on nurses’ communication.

Conclusion: The trauma resuscitation is a complex concept and involves many aspects that a nurse should keep track of. The nurse and the traumateam need to face the high requirements of the resuscitation to provide good and safe care for the patient under the whole intervention.
