Karim Brohi is a British surgeon who is currently the Clinical Director of the London Major Trauma Network, professor of trauma sciences at Queen Mary University of London[2] and a consultant vascular and trauma surgeon for Barts Health NHS Trust at the Royal London Hospital.[3] He founded the website trauma.org, due to what he perceived as inadequate care for major trauma patients. He coined the term 'Acute Traumatic Coagulopathy' to describe how coagulopathy caused by traumatic injury results in more severe bleeding and organ failiure.[4]
