The books concise visual approach will appeal to all professionals caring for burn patients in acute or recovery phases; it is of special value to those surgeons, physicians, nurses and related professionals in burn and emergency units.
The author emphasizes the fundamental surgical, medical and related procedures involved in each stage of burn care, thus enabling the reader to focus on the essentials, and ensure the best outcome for patients. Chapters range from burn physiology, initial care and resuscitation, to wound evaluation and surgical management, respiratory and critical care, rehabilitation, reconstruction and aftercare.
The author’s experience is immense and varied at two of the finest burn care organisations, the United States Army’s Institute of Surgical Research, and the Harvard Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Shriners Hospital for Children.
