About this book

E-FAST (extended focused assessment by sonograpy for trauma) represents the basic ultrasonographic approach to any trauma patient. Identification or exclusion of free fluid and air in the abdominal and thoracic cavities plays a pivotal role in deciding the immediate diagnostic and therapeutic path. Learning E-FAST is mandatory for all acute care surgeons and all physicians involved in trauma management. The structure of the book and its practical approach will make it an easy-to-consult and quick reference tool for beginners and a useful support for more experienced professionals.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book describes one of the basic applications of ultrasound, extended focused assessment by sonography for trauma, or E-FAST. It is the first of a new series of books, Ultrasound for Acute Care Surgeons. … Practitioners seeking to understand ultrasound and its applications to injury, or trainees seeking a guide to learn the technique will find this book helpful. … This is an excellent introduction to a technique that is important in both European and North American trauma practice.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
