A rapid reference guide to the approach and management of orthopaedic emergencies, this book provides quick differential diagnosis and treatment guidance for the emergency physician and orthopaedic resident and trainee. Chapters detail the initial management of musculoskeletal injuries, including reduction, splinting, and casting techniques for specific fractures and soft tissue injuries. A stepwise, how-to approach ensures easy learning, and an abundance of images provide clarity in instruction. This book also helps the reader identify those patients who can be appropriately treated as outpatients and patients who require urgent and emergent orthopaedic consultation.
