Trauma is a pandemic disease in the current society. In an attempt to minimize its impact, trauma care systems have been developed, the basic component being the Trauma Centers (TC). Management of the patient with severe trauma in the TC is supported by moderate scientific evidence, with many studies, but of weak quality. It is described how the volume, experience, availability of resources and other aspects are able to decrease mortality and achieve functional improvement in the TC in severe trauma patients.
