Tricycle accident leaves 12-year-old boy with multiple injuries

As the sun began to set on a warm summer evening, a young boy was making his way home from extra classes. While walking, he collided with a tricycle that was traveling in the same direction, causing the wheel to crush him. The child was rushed to Hospital E in critical condition, suffering from multiple traumatic shocks, severe hemorrhagic shock, and swelling and contusions in various areas of his body.

Upon arrival at the hospital, doctors quickly assessed the situation and classified it as a serious and dangerous emergency due to the child’s young age, multiple injuries, severe hemorrhagic shock, and risk of imminent death. The surgical team specializing in digestive surgery immediately sprang into action to repair the bladder rupture site and address other injuries in the abdomen.

Despite the risks and potential complications associated with large blood transfusions, doctors quickly embolized the patient’s internal iliac artery to stop the bleeding at critical locations causing significant blood loss. Over the next 24 hours, the patient received nearly 4 liters of blood transfusion to stabilize his condition.

Dr. Phong emphasized the importance of quick and accurate treatment for pediatric patients experiencing complex multi-traumatic shock. Thanks to the timely first aid and emergency transportation provided by the E Hospital team at the scene, the child’s life was saved. After 4 days of treatment, including monitoring and rehabilitation, the patient’s health had stabilized and he was preparing for discharge from hospital.
