About the Authors
  • Trauma: A Comprehensive Emergency Medicine Approach is a fully illustrated, interdisciplinary overview of trauma. Using both evidence-based approaches and a practical understanding of the emergency department, it gives a broad and in-depth review of trauma care. The entire spectrum of trauma presentations is reviewed from minor soft-tissue injuries through to major life-threatening conditions. Written by over 50 expert contributors, it gives concrete and practical recommendations for evaluation, treatment, consultation and disposition decisions on both common and unusual conditions. Extensive use of photographs, illustrations and key information boxes is used to make the material accessible. Additional sections provide an overview of multiple other issues relating to emergency management of trauma including administrative, nursing, research and legal matters. This book provides an essential reference for anyone who is called upon to provide acute trauma care in the emergency department.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Most trauma textbooks are written from a surgical perspective. Trauma: A Comprehensive Emergency Medicine Approach stands apart in that it is aimed toward practising emergency physicians, residents, nurses, and nurse practitioners, as well as internists and family physicians … The book is a delight to read. The editors are to be commended for maintaining a consistent style, language, and organization across the chapters. The writing is clear and concise, and the chapter lengths are digestible; with few exceptions, each chapter can easily be read in 30 to 45 minutes.' Journal of the American Medical Association

    '… well written, nicely illustrated …' Doody's Notes
