Trunkey to offer a comprehensive, contemporary summary of the treatment and post-operative management of traumatic injuries. The concise format makes it ideally suited for everyday use, and new, full-color illustrations highlight the most important aspects of urgent surgical care, including ventilator management, damage control, noninvasive techniques, imaging, infection control, dealing with mass casualties, and treating injuries induced by chemical and biological agents. "I would recommend it as worthwhile reading and a valuable reference for anyone involved in the care of the trauma patient." Foreword by: Jeffrey T. Sugimoto, Creighton University, June 2015 Stay informed on a wide variety of key topics - more than in any other existing text on trauma and critical care surgery.
