An evidence-based manual of best trauma practice
Reflecting current practice in the United Kingdom and Europe, this volume offers a widely accepted set of standards for good practice, providing a benchmark for all those involved in the care of the trauma patient. It is a unique reference for all professionals involved in the care of victims of trauma and an invaluable addition to every Accident and Emergency Department.
The second edition benefits from an increase in illustrative material, and is further enhanced by the addition of at least one case study for every topic in the book. 'Objectives' and 'Summary' boxes ensure a user-friendly approach, and are supplemented by key points, highlighted throughout the text. New to the second edition are 'Global Perspectives' boxes at the end of each chapter, which highlight techniques and practices from around the world.
