Trauma can happen to anyone. Though sometimes avoidable, it is seldom predicable. While motor vehicle accidents account for the largest majority of life-threatening trauma cases, other causes include falls, violence-related injuries, and other accidents.

Beyond the physicians and nurses who immediately tend to the medical needs of trauma victims, the "trauma page" mobilizes hospital resources within minutes, including the laboratory and blood bank technologists, respiratory therapists, imaging personnel, and operating room staff.
