Overview

Along with its companion volume, Essentials of Surgical Specialties, this medical textbook was produced by senior editor Lawrence (vascular surgery, David Geffen School of Medicine, U. of California-Los Angeles) and colleagues with the goal of developing an educational program in surgery for third- and fourth-year medical students not planning on pursuing planning a surgical career. The text describes the knowledge and skills in surgery that members of the Association for Surgical Education have identified as being needed by all physicians. After chapters on surviving a surgery clerkship, perioperative management of surgical patients, fluids and electrolytes, nutrition, surgical bleeding, shock, surgical critical care, wounds and wound healing, surgical infection, trauma, and burns, the remainder of the material is organized according to anatomy.
