About this book

Trauma surgery has increasingly become a specialized field inspired by different principles and philosophy. A good trauma surgeon is a surgeon who knows how to perform abdominal vascular, thoracic, urologic, gynecologic, and orthopaedic procedures and is able to repair multiple traumatic injuries in the best sequence possible. In this first volume, practical, up-to-date guidance is provided on the optimal critical care and ICU management of trauma patients. In addition, individual chapters focus on specific injuries in orthopaedic trauma (and especially spinal trauma) and neurotrauma, with the aim of providing a fresh view of the surgical approach and practical suggestions for improving the skills of treating surgeons. Educational issues and the organization of a trauma center are also covered.

The volume will be a handy pocket guide for trainee surgeons and any surgeon, physician, or nurse who treats trauma patients. It will be particularly relevant for emergency department physicians, critical care and ICU doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and professionals responsible for trauma care and decision making, programs of trauma education, or organization of a trauma center.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is part of multivolume set of handbooks from the World Society of Emergency Surgery intended to provide a practical guide to procedures, techniques, and operative strategy in trauma and acute surgery. … General surgeons at initial levels of training and experience are an appropriate audience for this work … . Line drawings and tables reproduce well. More tables describing scoring systems and injury types would be extremely helpful.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
