Nearly a quarter million children are hospitalized for traumatic injuries each year in the United States. Groundbreaking research from Mark Hall, MD, a critical care physician-scientist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is saving more of those lives.

Dr. Hall and his team have found that a child’s immune system can be severely weakened by traumatic injury. These study findings are helping doctors predict which critically injured children will need the most clinical intervention to fight off life-threatening infections and which treatments will be most effective.

Thanks to Dr. Hall and his team, hospitals across the country are changing how they care for critically injured children and saving more lives.
