|Keywords:||School of Health Systems Studies|
|Abstract:||Traumatic injuries cause 5.8 million deaths per year globally. Before the advent of antibiotics, sepsis was considered almost inevitable after injury. Today infection continues to be a common complication after traumatic injury and is associated with increases in morbidity and mortality and longer hospital stays. Research into the pattern of antibiotic use in post-traumatic injuries focus mainly on minor injuries. There is a paucity of study into the prevention of infections following traumatic injuries. This review analyses the evidence for the pattern and role of prophylactic antibiotics in the management of minor injuries.|
