Pediatric head trauma is one of the most common reasons for consultation in the ED, and can be mild, moderate or severe. The most common causes of head trauma in children and youth presenting to Canadian EDs include falls, sports-related injuries, being hit on the head by an object or by colliding with an obstacle, or injuries involving bicycles and motor vehicles. Annual rates range from 130 to 200 cases per 100,000 population, leading to at least 20,000 emergency department visits in Canadian pediatric hospitals per year.
