About this book

Trauma is the leading cause of death among people under the age of 40 and it ranks third for all age groups. Still, relatively few clinicians specialize in trauma and training is often obtained through experience. The number of trauma patients is expected to continue to grow as pre-hospital care continues to advance. As well, hospitals increasingly see trauma treatment, which requires no pre-approval, as a good source of revenue. Given these developments, the number of opportunities for specialists trained in trauma, including anesthesiologists and critical care physicians, will expand in the years ahead. This book addresses the need for an up-to-date, comprehensive and clinically focused volume for practitioners and trainees in trauma anesthesia and critical care. It is organized by organ system. The editor is an attending physician at a major urban hospital center recognized worldwide for its outstanding emergency medical services including trauma care and is recruiting leading trauma anesthesiologists to contribute. Anesthesiologists, pain medicine physicians, critical care physicians and trainees are the target audience.

Reviews

“Strong point of this multi-author textbook, which is not captured in the ‘trauma chapter’ of most major anesthesia textbooks, is the valuable detailed coverage of most of the spectrum of trauma care that our specialty will encounter. … this is a good first attempt to cover an important area of clinical anesthesia in greater detail than is offered by major textbooks.” (Doreen Yee, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 62, 2015)

“This is a multiauthored review of anesthetic practice, pain management, and critical care of injured patients. … Anesthesiologists and intensivists at all levels managing injured patients are the intended audience for this book … . Each chapter has an ample reference list with citations dating to within one year of publication.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2014)
