Overview

Although many wounds and burns may be minor, and the treatment straightforward, the consequences of improper assessment or management can be serious. Disabling injury may be overlooked, and life threatening infections can follow inappropriate treatment. Accident and emergency staff must be prepared to begin initial assessment and treatment before surgical help arrives.
This new edition provides practical and authoritative information on all aspects of wound and burn care, taking the reader from initial assessment to the treatment of specific injuries. The care and legal aspects of life-threatening wounds are discussed, as well as anesthesia, surgical techniques, and infection in injuries to the hand, face, neck, chest and abdomen. Throughout, the authors present the guidelines concisely, with detailed advice on anatomy, medication, and treatment techniques, providing an invaluable source for junior doctors and nurses in ambulances and in the emergency room.
