Abstract

The impact of trauma-related injury and death in the United States of America has been well documented [189]; the financial burden is staggering and the psychological and emotional cost incalculable. Chest trauma accounts directly for 25% of all trauma-related deaths and is a major contributing factor in another 25% of accidental deaths [22, 319].
