Book description

This full-color atlas presents nearly 700 images from the largest and busiest trauma center in North America. The images bring the reader to the bedside of patients with the full spectrum of common and uncommon traumatic injuries including motor vehicle accidents, falls, lacerations, burns, impalements, stabbings, and gunshot wounds. The clinical, operative, and autopsy photographs; X-ray, ultrasound, CT, MRI, and angiography radiographs; and original illustrations depicting injury patterns guide clinicians in recognizing, prioritizing, and managing trauma patients by using the physical cues paramount to the emergency setting. Organized by major body regions into separate chapters on the head, face, neck, chest, abdomen, musculoskeletal system, spine and soft tissue, the thorough text of this comprehensive atlas discusses management guidelines, emergency workup protocols, and common pitfalls. The Color Atlas of Emergency Trauma is an essential resource for those involved in trauma care.
