Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This first edition of a book describing the breadth of burn care is edited by two of the world's leaders in the subject.
Purpose: An overview of burn care is provided for the student of burn management, senior trainee or referring practitioner.
Audience: Trainees and practitioners in plastic surgery or general surgery along with specialties referring into burn programs are an appropriate audience for this work. The editors are from the U.K. and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
Features: After initial discussion of burn resuscitation and supportive care, management for specific burn problems including difficult reconstructive issues, metabolic management, rehabilitation, and psychosocial concerns are reviewed. The 15 chapters are well written and organized. The black-and-white illustrations make appreciation of the descriptions of color and texture changes with wounds difficult. There is an inconsistent pattern of reference material utilization. For example, chapters on initial management and resuscitation rely largely on books edited previously by the editors. Later chapters, in particular the description of anesthetic concerns and metabolic manipulation in burn care, have extensive reference lists dating to within two to three years of publication and citing original work. The table of contents lists chapters by general subject content and authorship. A concluding index of approximately 15 pages has separate citations for figures, pictures and tables.
Assessment: This is a worthy contribution to the burn literature. While much of what is provided can be found in books previously edited by these practitioners, more recent evolution in burn management is also discussed. I was disappointed at the lack of at least a small number of color plates highlighting burn injuries of specific types. In most cases, however, black-and-white photographs can be adequate.
