My current project revolves around a hate crime, and a kid gets caught up in the drive by. I've done two months of research on gunshot wounds, but I haven't found any books or articles specifically concerning the effect on a child's body. I figured I'd ask around on these types of forums before just taking what I have so far and working with it, haha. I have three basic questions I need answered, so if you guys can help a new member out, I'd really appreciate it! Would that kind of physical trauma cause any other complications or concerns in a child's body rather than an adult's? Do extra precautions need to be taken in that scenario? Can children go through the normal anesthesia for surgery? Would the recovery time be longer or shorter for a kid? Thank you in advance!
