Abstract

Because of the growing number of automobiles equipped with air bags, it is virtually certain that patients will seek treatment in the emergency department for air bag-mediated injury. The emergency nurse must be aware of air bag-mediated injury patterns and prepared for triage and management of any of the potential concurrent injuries caused by air-bag deployment.
