Overview

The Trauma Care Manual was first published in 2000, and was the first evidence-based manual of best trauma practice. Now in its second edition, it continues to offer clear and practical guidelines for the management of victims of major trauma, reflecting current practice in the United Kingdom and Europe.

The second edition benefits from an increase in illustrative material, and is further enhanced by the addition of at least one case study for every topic in the book. 'Objectives' and 'Summary' boxes ensure a user-friendly approach, and are supplemented by key points, highlighted throughout the text. New to the second edition are 'Global Perspectives' boxes at the end of most of the chapters, which highlight techniques and practices from around the world.

Written by members of Trauma Care and invited experts, the Trauma Care Manual offers a nationally accepted set of standards for good practice which provide a benchmark for all those involved in the care of the trauma patient. It is a unique reference for all professionals involved in the care of victims of trauma and an invaluable addition to every Accident and Emergency Department.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"this manual is a very pragmatic, useable and thoughtful book which contains sensible and practical advice"

Mr Stephen Bush, Univadis, 2009

From The Critics
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD(University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the first edition of a manual originating in the United Kingdom intended to be the foundation of a teaching program similar to Advanced Trauma Life Support of the American College of Surgeons.
Purpose: A summary is provided of the guidelines developed in the United Kingdom for best practice in the management of major trauma.
Audience: The student, registrar, or consultant in surgery, anesthesiology, or emergency medicine is an appropriate audience for this work. The majority of the contributors are members of the Trauma Care Council or Trauma Care Advisory Board in the United Kingdom.
Features: The layout of the book is similar to that of the Advanced Trauma Life Support course in that an overview of injury epidemiology opens followed by assessment of the patient and injury to various organs in subsequent chapters. Also included are specific reference to the problems of pediatric trauma, injury to women, thermal injury, psychological demands of trauma, and brief comments on intensive care management. Chapters are well written and are opened with content objectives and closed with a brief summary. References date to within one to two years of publication and represent consensus documents or original work. Black-and-white photographs and radiographs are of adequate quality. The table of contents lists only chapters by title while a detailed subject index of 15 pages concludes.
Assessment: This is a worthy consensus document, the European equivalent of Advanced Trauma Life Support. The epidemiology and focus on pattern of injury is largely European, which is appropriate given regional variability in patterns of trauma. Trauma educators on either side of the Atlantic will find this a worthy guide.
