Trauma it comes from a Greek concept that means "wound" . It is a physical injury generated by an external agent or a emotional blow which generates persistent damage to the unconscious.
He physical trauma is linked to a fault that the body . A wound is technically the interruption of the continued extension of the mucous membranes or skin, which causes the bodily interior to be communicated with the exterior.
Sprains, fractures and dislocations are examples of trauma. They usually do not pose a risk of life, although they can cause disability in the person . A skull trauma On the other hand, it can be very risky as it threatens the central nervous system.
In the same way, it should be stressed that within the various types of physical traumas it is necessary to highlight others that are also characterized by being serious and that require a lot of attention and follow-up by medical professionals. Specifically, among those are the following:
Injury to the spine. In this case, the danger that a person has had this type of injury is that it can affect the spinal cord. If this occurs, it could mean paralysis in the patient's limbs.
Abdominal trauma The urinary system, digestive system and blood vessels suffer the consequences of this type of injury.
Thoracic trauma The respiratory and cardiac functions of a person's organism are those that can be severely affected by that person.
A psychological trauma , on the other hand, is a negative and lasting emotion that puts the well-being of the person at risk. What the trauma does is to unbalance the mental system of the subject and its existence from the point of view of emotions.
The trauma arises because of a fear of great intensity (terror ) or lack of ability to control a real or potential danger . It is common to appear when the patient witnesses an event linked to the damage or death of another human being, or when he receives unexpected and tragic news related to a loved one.
Beyond the different currents of the psychology , there is a consensus that a trauma is a fact that generates excessive stress , which transcends the usual experiences. For example: although it is logical to feel fear of fire, a person who suffers a trauma from a fire can even be prevented from lighting a match or match.
In addition to all of the above, we cannot ignore the fact that the term trauma is very present in the world of culture and entertainment. Thus, for example, in the cinematographic field it is necessary to emphasize the existence of a film entitled Trauma, which saw the light in 2005 and is directed by Marc Evans. Colin Firth or Mena Suvari are some of the actors who participate in this production that takes as its starting point the figure of Ben, a man who wakes up after having been in a coma for a while and who discovers that all his previous life has disappeared.
Likewise, it should be stressed that there is also a musical group called Trauma, of Chilean origin, which is framed within the Metal genre.
