Overview

Standards in emergency care have improved dramatically over the past ten years and the trauma team is now seen as a vital component of care of seriously ill patients. Each chapter of this highly-illustrated book is written by a specialist and concentrates on care after the golden hour. The initial resuscitation of the trauma vicim by the trauma team is described and the management of patients in the early post-resuscitation phase is then dealt with in detail. Advice is given on communication and transfer of patients to trauma centres, and separate chapters discuss variations when dealing with special population groups and conditions.
