An Excerpt from the course on Abdominal and Genitourinary Injuries

Kidney injuries happen due to a forceful blow or penetrating injuries and most likely occur with other injuries. Isolated kidney injuries are possible but rare.

Some of the signs and symptoms that can indicate a possible kidney injury are:

  • Abrasion, laceration, or contusion on the flank
  • Any penetrating wound in the flank or upper abdominal region
  • Fractures on either side of the rib cage, lower thoracic area, or in upper lumbar vertebrae
  • A hematoma in the flank region

If you suspect kidney injury, treat the patient for shock, transport immediately, and monitor the vital signs en route
