Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon C. Olsen, M.D., F.A.C.E.P.(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book describes the emergency management of hand injuries.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide physicians working in the emergency department with the knowledge needed to investigate and treat hand injuries with confidence. This important topic is well covered in this brief but thorough book.
Audience: The book is written for emergency physicians and those working in plastic, orthopedic, or trauma surgery departments, according to the authors. The authors include an emergency medicine physician and two hand surgeons.
Features: Black-and-white illustrations are of high quality, with an appropriate number of illustrations. No references are listed. The table of contents and index are adequate. The book is small, attractive, and well laid out.
Assessment: This book is a brief, but useful, summary of the basic approach to commonly encountered hand emergencies. It is not inclusive on the topic. It would be useful to the clinician as an introductory text on the topic or as a review before a board exam. Its use in the emergency department would be for a brief concise review of the approach to hand injuries, and it is recommended for such purchase.
