Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Monique Serpas, PT, DPT, OCS (Touro Infirmary)
Description: This book outlines both general and specific concepts of the management of trauma injury from basic wound healing to specific injuries and conditions related to different regions of the body.
Purpose: The aim is to provide a "comprehensive presentation of individual injuries and their effect on function, as well as guidelines and potential results of physical therapy treatment." The book provides information beyond entry level regarding the specific medical management of trauma. As the profession of physical therapy continues to elevate the level of care in rehabilitation, books such as these are needed.
Audience: The audience includes students, clinicians, and educators. A third of the book provides entry-level information, while the remaining two-thirds presents advanced information which would suit ambitious students interested in learning more about trauma management. Practicing clinicians in acute care and orthopaedics will find this a useful reference.
Features: The book is organized into three parts. The first covers general traumatology, which includes topics such as wound healing, surgical infections, treatment of bone injuries, and complications of fracture healing and treatment. It serves as a good review for practicing clinicians. The second part, on special traumatology, is organized by regions of the body and includes clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment, and aftercare for each injury. Each part includes case studies and its own glossary as well as study questions. The book also has a nice amount of anatomic illustrations and radiological images.
Assessment: This is a nice review of the medical management of traumatic and orthopedic injuries as well as considerations for rehabilitation. The special traumatology sections that outline each injury's clinical signs, diagnosis, and prognosis will be particularly helpful to clinicians practicing in a direct access environment. This is a good book for clinicians looking for more information about the surgical management of fractures and, overall, it is a fine reference for practicing clinicians in acute care and orthopedics as well as ambitious students.
