Trauma Surgery Emergency Department

Trauma Surgery works interdisciplinarily together with 18 specialist departments in the emergency department of the BGU Murnau. Accidents treated can have happened at work and in free time, in school or at home.

Serious injuries, which are brought in to the emergency department by helicopter or ambulance, are treated in the emergency room by a team of at least 5 doctors and additional specialist emergency nurses.

The spacious shock room has been designed according to ATLS standard, a globally established shock room management standard. Computer and magnetic resonance tomography facilities are in the immediately vicinity of the shock room, so that the transport routes of injured patients can be kept short.
