About the Authors
  • The new edition of this full-color atlas presents nearly 900 images from one of the largest and busiest trauma centers in North America. The images bring the reader to the bedside of patients with the full spectrum of common and uncommon traumatic injuries including motor vehicle accidents, falls, lacerations, burns, impalements, stabbings and gunshot wounds. The clinical, operative and autopsy photographs; x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and angiography radiographs; and original illustrations depicting injury patterns will help guide clinicians in recognizing, prioritizing and managing trauma patients. Organized by major body regions into separate chapters on the head, face, neck, chest, abdomen, musculoskeletal system, spine and soft tissue, this thorough text discusses management guidelines, emergency workup protocols and common pitfalls. The Color Atlas of Emergency Trauma is an essential resource for those involved in trauma care.

    • In this new edition, more than 200 new images have been added and every chapter has been revised and updated, giving readers an up-to-date view of emergency trauma
    • New chapters on ballistics and disaster medicine focus readers on these events, giving in-depth coverage of their consequences
    • An accompanying CD, featuring all of the images from the book in a downloadable format, allows the images to be easily used for teaching purposes
