About this book

This volume covers the entire spectrum of acute burn treatment. Individual chapters deal with basic aspects of different burn mechanisms as well as the acute care of burn patients. Pre-hospital management, critical care and basic concepts of burn surgery related to the acute phase, as well as the use of skin and skin substitutes in early stages of therapy are addressed in this volume. Chapters on supportive therapies such as optimizing nutrition and fluid homeostasis, infection control and treatment, respiratory support and pain management complete the comprehensive approach to the patient in this early stage of treatment, while chapters on epidemiology, prevention and disaster management enable the reader to evaluate the given information in a broader context.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is the first volume of a two-volume set of books intended to be a comprehensive reference for burn injury and related problems managed in burn centers. It provides a state-of-the-art presentation on early burn management. Senior trainees and practitioners in general and plastic surgery are an appropriate audience for this work coming from major burn centers in the U.S. and Europe. … This is a worthy general update for practitioners.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2012)
