Morphologic and quantitative analyses of leukocytes in patients with multiple system trauma

Morphologic and quantitative analyses of leukocytes in patients with multiple system trauma

Advances in Therapy 24(1): 119-122

Multiple system trauma can occur in accidents, natural disasters, and deliberate attacks, and vital areas of the body, such as the head, chest, and abdomen, may be affected. Investigators in the present study sought to examine morphologic and morphometric alterations of leukocyte responses in patients with multiple trauma during the first 4 h after a traumatic event. Venous blood samples were drawn from 51 patients, 30 male and 21 female, aged 16 to 59 y. The number of leukocytes increased significantly in all patients, but no significant differences were noted between the male and female groups. Complete blood counts revealed normal ratios of leukocyte types. It is suggested that in patients who have experienced multiple trauma, aggressive antibiotic therapy should be initiated to prevent posttraumatic infection and to protect against secondary organ failure.
