Severe injuries are the main cause of death in this country in population under 40 and across the entire population they are the fourth most frequent cause of death. Every year it is necessary to treat in the Czech Republic about 10,000 severe injuries, which bring not only serious health but also social and economic problems. Therefore, in terms of the National Traumatological Program of the Czech Republic, treatment of such severe injuries is provided at trauma centres where comprehensive interdisciplinary qualified treatment is provided.

The Trauma Center of the University Hospital thus has continuously prepared trauma department for treatment of serious injuries with acute admission which provides for fluent continuance of the hospital care following the pre-hospital care provided by rescue service and air rescue service, which provides for transport of the seriously injured from extensive catchment territory. The admission part is followed by diagnostic complement and continuous operation of emergency operating rooms having modern equipment for treatment of cavity and limb trauma, including the ensuring of aseptic environment at the trauma operating room with streamlined air flow.
