May 20 is annually celebrated as a professional holiday - World Traumatology Day.
The Greek origin of the term "traumatology" reveals its content in a broad sense - it is a science that studies wounds and injuries, their prevention and methods of treatment.
Traumatology is associated with various fields of medicine, and this relationship is determined by the localization of the injury itself, i.e. that part of the body or organ that is injured as a result of mechanical impact, the circumstances of the injury, its current and possible consequences, the general condition of the patient, the presence of chronic diseases and contraindications, etc. Septic, purulent, burn surgery, neurosurgery, phlebology, hematology and other branches of medicine are closely related to traumatology.
