Previous parts to this series on thoracic and neck trauma discussed the anatomy and physiology of the thorax, assessment and initial nursing interventions, imaging and adjuncts to diagnosis. Part 2 described specific chest wall and lung injuries, types of pneumothoraces and their diagnosis and management. Section 3 examined other types of thoracic injuries and their management, such as trauma to the diaphragm and heart. This final part provides a brief but concise overview of neck anatomy, trauma and management.
