The field of emergency medicine is one of the most rapidly growing areas of the medical profession. The present book is a comprehensive text on this important specialty for resident and attending physicians. In sixty-three chapters, the book aims to cover the field completely--from the scene of the accident to specialist referral and from head to toe. The informative papers are organized into three complementary sections: accident assessment and general principles of emergency medicine; trauma conditions; and surgical and obstetric emergencies. This highly illustrated volume combines the insights of emergency physicians with the detailed knowledge of specialists.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
