Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a softbound guide to care of the injured patient.
Purpose: A pocket companion with the intent to provide broad scope of coverage is provided.
Audience: Students or trainees on a trauma rotation are an appropriate audience for this work. Editors represent trauma centers throughout the United States with occasional representation from Western Europe. Authors are widely recognized for their expertise.
Features: A comprehensive approach to trauma management is provided in this pocket-sized book. The 50 plus chapters are each approximately 10 pages in length. The book begins with an overview of trauma systems followed by general approaches to the injured patient, care of specific patterns of injury, and then related problems following trauma. Among the problems discussed are the confounding effects of age, drugs and alcohol, thermal injury syndromes, and radiation exposure. A final group of seven chapters covers some of the critical care issues surrounding the management of injury. Occasional use is made of figures and tables, but there are no photographs. References date to within two years of publication and may represent primary or secondary sources. The table of contents provides chapter titles while the detailed index includes separate citations for figures and tables.
Assessment: This manual follows the familiar and successful formula of the larger text, Trauma, 4th edition (McGraw Hill, 2000). Unlike many handbooks patterned after a parent text, however, this manual's presentations and references have been updated by the authors since the larger hardbound reference was published. I recommend the Trauma Manual for conciseness and clarity in presentation and consider this an effective pocket guide for the members of the trauma service.
