Vital Organ Injuries are Always an Emergency
Internal organ injuries often require one or more surgeries coupled with extensive follow-up care. They can also result in long-term or permanent disability and reduced quality of life.
The human body has five vital organs – these are the organs that are essential to human survival.
An injury to any of these organs is considered a medical emergency.
Common Causes of Vital Organ Injuries
Injuries to internal organs can occur through:
Blunt trauma — This can result from car crashes, falls, and even physical assaults.
Penetrating trauma — This occurs when a foreign object pierces a vital organ.
Defective pharmaceuticals and medications — Defective drugs can cause severe damage to vital organs and hamper their function. For example, drugs used in several hepatitis C clinical trials were associated with severe heart damage.
Medical mistakes — Even the most experienced surgeon can make mistakes. When these medical mistakes do occur, they can have debilitating effects on internal organs such as trauma-related damage and infection.
