About the Authors
  • This comprehensive 1992 treatise was the first on electrical trauma in humans. Several 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 clinical treatment protocols. Coverage of the topic is broad, ranging from mathematical models of molecular processes to intra-operative clinical care. The volume describes the basic physiochemical mechanisms responsible for tissue damage and explains the complex and variable ways in which electrical trauma manifests itself. Electrical Trauma serves as an important source of information from a variety of perspectives that contribute to the understanding of the electrical injury problem and development of rational therapy. It is suitable for clinicians in trauma surgery, emergency medicine, plastic surgery, intensive care and burns 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
