Timing of Tertiary Survey in Multi-Trauma Patient: Before or After 24 Hours?


Winkle B1 and Nair L2

The Tertiary Trauma survey has proven to reduce the incidence of missed injuries in the complex, multi-trauma
patient. There is currently no clear guideline on when a TTS should be performed. Most guidelines suggest within 24
hours of admission; however there is currently no evidence on whether this is appropriate or whether this should be
delayed till after 24 hours. We present a review of the current literature surrounding this issue.
