About the Authors
  • This is the first comprehensive volume to be published on the subject of electrical trauma in humans. Many of the world's leading experts describe the basic mechanisms of tissue injury in victims of electrical trauma, the complex and varied manifestations of electrical trauma, and state-of-the-art clinical treatment protocols. Promising new therapies still in the research stage are also discussed and assessed. The volume describes the basic physiochemical mechanisms responsible for tissue damage and explains the complex and variable ways in which electrical trauma manifests itself. An understanding of these underlying processes provides the basis for a rational and consistent approach to treatment which is highlighted in this volume. Electrical Trauma serves as a new and important source of information from a variety of perspectives that contributes to the understanding of the electrical injury problem. It is suitable for clinicians in plastic surgery, intensive care and burn units and for those with an academic and research interest in the mechanisms and causes of electrical trauma.

    • A whole volume dedicated to this important source of injury
    • The topics range from clinical management to theoretical modelling of electrical injury
    • A complete source of reference for all those involved in the treatment and management of electrical trauma

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...the book fills a void and can be consulted with benefit by both clinicians and laboratory scientists." William W. Monafo, Archives of Surgery

    "...a valuable library reference book for both clinical practitioners and basic scientists interested in electrical trauma." Walter Peters, Journal of Critical Care

    "...one of the first comprehensive books on the subject...a good source of information on electrical trauma and would provide excellent background reading for the interested pharmacist practicing in the emergency medicine or critical care area where electrical trauma patients receive care." Edward Sypniewski Jr., American Journal of Hospital Pharmacy
