This popular and respected trauma manual covers the entire spectrum of emergency interventions, from pre-hospital care to resuscitation, treatment of specific organ injuries, priorities in intensive care, and management of special situations. Includes radiographic, CT, MRI, and ultrasonography findings. In addition to a new section on the intensive care unit and an extended section on surgical emergencies, this manual also covers GI hemorrhage, hernias, bowel obstruction, pancreatitis, biliary tract disease, and other surgical challenges faced by trauma and emergency surgery personnel.
More than 100 illustrations demonstrate specific injuries and procedures. This is one of our more popular courses.
The text is design for rapid information retrieval and will be a valuable reference to keep with you on the job.
Those interested in the topics of radiography and trauma may also be interested in Trauma and Mobile Radiography, which has a particular focus on the use of mobile radiography equipment in trauma situations. For an excellent resource on imaging of the musculoskeletal system, including trauma situations, we recommend Basic Musculoskeletal Imaging.
