"This comprehensive text on trauma and its complications is an important treatise, which belongs in the library of all students, residents, and practitioners who care for or wish to be informed about care of the injured patient."—Charles E.

This definitive one-stop resource begins with an informative look at the history and epidemiology of trauma surgery, as well as injury prevention, before moving into core topics such as trauma systems, triage, and transport, and managing shock. It then delivers a clear, organ-by-organ overview of the treatment of traumatic injuries, from the cranium and brain to pelvic fractures, while covering need-to-know subjects such as anesthesia and infection.
