Main description:

A concise yet comprehensive guide to trauma evaluation and management covering the full scope of injuries

"This is a worthy update to the previous edition published 10 years ago. It is a helpful, quick introduction for students or a procedural pocket guide for emergency department practitioners. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

Featuring a succinct outline approach, numerous illustrations, and a presentation of concepts devoid of institutional bias, Emergent Management of Trauma will prove to be indispensable for all trauma care practitioners, including attending and resident physicians, medical students, midlevel providers, nurses, and paramedics.

Covering the essential points of diagnosis, management, and disposition of the trauma patient, Emergent Management of Trauma is divided into six sections:

  • Resuscitation Concepts: covers prehospital issues, hospital organization, patient evaluation, and “ABC” interventions
  • Anatomic Areas of Injury: includes important management algorithms and covers major traumatic injuries literally from top to bottom
  • Extremity Trauma: oriented from hand to shoulder and then from hip to foot
  • Special Groups: focuses on trauma in children, pregnancy, and the elderly
  • Environmental Issues: covers temperature extremes as well as weapons of mass destruction
  • Useful Resources: offers procedure instructions, radiograph interpretation pearls, and a pertinent drug formulary
