Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book is well presented and authoritative and encompasses 66 chapters of 784 pages with additional online content which includes 55 PowerPoint presentations and 27 videos...the online content was simple both to activate and to use... Total Burn Care remains encyclopedic in its content with numerous chapters detailing the in-depth theory of most of subjects relevant to burn care- from nutrition to hematology, surgical technique to epidemiology...Overall, Total Burn Care in its fourth edition is an excellent text- certainly the most comprehensive available today - and I would recommend this as the first choice for the library or book shelf of those involved in burn care."

Annals of Plastic Surgery, Oct 2012

"This edition remains the standard among textbooks describing burn management. The addition of extensive online materials allows inclusion of additional chapters and topics without increasing the size of the book. This edition has been extensively revised and includes many new authors." David J. Dries, MD(University of Minnesota Medical School) Doody 4 stars

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive textbook of adult and pediatric burn management. The previous edition was published five years ago.
Purpose: A wide-ranging presentation of the management of patients suffering burns is accompanied by extensive online resources.
Audience: Senior trainees and practitioners managing burn-injured patients are an appropriate audience for this work. Many authors are from the University Texas Hospitals, particularly the one in Galveston, but there is also an international group of contributors.
Features: After a review of epidemiology, resuscitation, and prevention of burn injury, the book presents details of critical care, operative reconstruction, anesthetic technique, and supportive services including pathology and the skin bank. Individual chapters describe the impact of organ failure on burn survival, along with age considerations. Specialized injuries are described, including electrocution, cold injury, chemical exposure, and radiation. Concluding chapters review the pathology of burn scar, rehabilitation, and psychosocial issues. Chapters are clearly written, and color illustrations have replaced the black-and-white photographs of previous editions. Apart from a short list of selected readings, references are not included in the print version. Instead, the majority of references, along with PowerPoint presentations and video clips for about half of the chapters, are included in an online resource collection. A detailed subject index includes separate citations for figures, tables, and boxes.
Assessment: This edition remains the standard among textbooks describing burn management. The addition of extensive online materials allows inclusion of additional chapters and topics without increasing the size of the book. This edition has been extensively revised and includes many new authors.
