Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a useful textbook for clinicians working in specialist burns care settings. The text is highly detailed, and contains copious relevant and current guidelines and references. … at a more specialist level this is a valuable resource and a very practical reference aid.” (Kana Miyagi, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 75 (2), February, 2014)

“It covers key issues across the spectrum of the treatment of burn injury. Trainees and practitioners managing patients with thermal injury are the intended audience for this work emanating from an international group of contributors and editors. … This is an effective introduction to the major topics is burn management for senior trainees or new practitioners. Because of the international perspective of authors and editors, a wider range of management strategies are discussed in comparison to works with a North American perspective.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2013)
