This manual provides a practical approach to operative trauma management. Written entirely by physicians who care for critically injured patients every day, the manual features a practical hands on approach to operative trauma care that represents the principles used by the faculty at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore Maryland. The book contains innumerable practical tips and surgical pearls. It is presented in a manual format so that it fits easily into a white coat pocket, making it a portable and readily accessible reference.
The Shock Trauma Manual of Operative Techniques is a valuable resource for practicing surgeons in the community who cover the Emergency Department and thus, may be called upon to provide operative therapy for trauma, residents, particularly those in whom operative trauma is not a part of their training, and fellows who are training in surgical critical care and trauma.
