Highly illustrated throughout, it provides the descriptions, advice and decision-making skills necessary to ensure safe practice in the care of the severely injured patient, in addition to the operative approach to haemorrhage control and organ injury management.   

Comprehensive in its coverage, with clear and concise chapters, it includes:

  • Trauma care and resuscitation
  • Pre-hospital care
  • Damage control surgery
  • The exsanguinating patient
  • Trauma thoracotomy
  • Ballistics
  • Care of special groups

It also serves as a good overview of the whole scope of trauma management for more experienced doctors at consultant level providing acute and emergency surgical care.
