Emergency Care in Maxillofacial Trauma


Emergency Care in Maxillofacial Trauma –Facial and Ophthalmic Perspective

  • Aim: consider life- and sight- threatening conditions that may occur following trauma to the face.
  • Life- and sight- threatening complications may occur following apparently trivial injuries, which may not immediately be evident on arrival in the resuscitation or emergency setting.
  • Assessment needs to be both systematic and repeated.
  • True maxillofacial and ophthalmic ‘‘emergencies’’ are uncommon.
  • Focused on any clinical problem that requires immediate identification and management to preserve life, or sight.
  • Facial injuries resulting in life threatening conditions include:
airway compromise
                   profuse blood loss

  3. Great post! Most of the emergency dental care clinics will check your condition. If your condition seems urgent, then you will be treated within 24 hours. But patients with less urgent problems may be offered an appointment on another day.
