Massive initial trauma or additional insult elicits a more powerful neutrophil response [91]. In this state, neutrophils are attracted and activated further to degranulate. This is the so-called respiratory burst, which induces secondary organ tissue injury. The active substances released from degranulated neutrophils include neutral protease (elastase and capthesin G), oxygen radicals, myeloperoxidase (MPO), NO, leukotrienes, and platelet-activating factor (PAF). In trauma patients, increased levels of soluble ICAM-1 correlate with the development of complications after trauma (sepsis, MOF) [88, 92].
