Abstract: This research work is based on the results of a study of 455 injured people with severe concomitant trauma, urgently hospitalized in the intensive care and anesthesiology department of the City Clinical Hospital No. 21, Ufa. Concomitant trauma is observed predominantly among the working age population (83.3%) and mainly in males (61%) and leads to high mortality (36.5%). The reasons in most cases are road traffic injuries (59.6%), falls from a great height (27%), inflicted injury (7.7%). Every third patient is admitted to hospital under the influence of alcohol. Pedestrians predominate among the victims of road accidents in megalopolis (82.3%). The frequency of hospitalizations for the entire cohort significantly vary in seasons (p = 0.021), days of the week (p = 0.007), hours during the day (p < 0.001).
Conclusion: Knowledge of the reasons, admission regularities of victims allows to take prophylactic measures.
