Article highlights the role of alcohol use in trauma. Clinical studies that explore the effects of acute and chronic alcohol use on the response to injury are discussed. Potential mechanisms, both physiologic and cellular, by which alcohol may enhance injury are reviewed. Advances in the identification of alcohol abuse in trauma victims and the use of early alcohol counseling are discussed. Areas for future investigations are proposed.
