The world’s leading resource on trauma surgery― with an expanded full-color atlas A Doody's Core Title for 2017! Hailed by readers and reviewers for its expert authorship and high-yield clinical content, Trauma is unquestionably the field’s definitive text. Enhanced by a full-color design and a high-quality atlas of anatomic drawings and surgical approaches, this trusted classic takes readers through the full range of injuries the trauma surgeon is likely to encounter. Supported by numerous x-rays, CT scans, plus tables throughout, Trauma begins with an informative look at kinematics and the mechanisms of trauma injury. Subsequent chapters provide useful background information on the epidemiology of trauma; injury prevention; the basics of trauma systems, triage, and transport; and much more. The next section meticulously reviews generalized approaches to the trauma patient, from pre-hospital care and managing shock, to emergency department thoracotomy and the management of infections. Trauma then delivers a clear organ-by-organ survey of treatment protocols designed to help clinicians respond to any critical care situation with confidence, no matter what body system is involved. The remaining sections of the book will help readers successfully handle specific challenges in trauma―including alcohol and drug abuse, and combat-related wounds―in addition to post-traumatic complications such as multiple organ failure. • Media download with high-quality procedural videos • Increased number of algorithms and illustrations • More international authors • Expanded Trauma Atlas contains precise, full-color anatomical illustrations and proven surgical techniques • High-yield section on specific approaches to the trauma patient prepares readers for the complete spectrum of cases in trauma/critical surgery care they will face in real-world practice • A-to-Z overview of the management of specific traumatic injuries • Detailed discussion of the management of complications

You’ll have access to all of the current innovations across the broad spectrum of vascular trauma, presented in a well-organized fashion that allows you to quickly hone-in on the most important issues in patient care and management. Emphasizes the current management of civilian vascular injuries with an historical reflection of pioneering contributions from the battlefield. Combines the largest existing database of military vascular trauma with the experience of one of the nation's premier civilian trauma centers. Examines operative techniques and "damage control" for vascular traumas. For the first time, includes a novel International Perspectives section featuring fascinating accounts of vascular trauma from nine leading surgeons from five continents. This section focuses on innovative surgical treatments tailored to locally developed pathways of care, training solutions, and regional injury patterns. End-to-end coverage of all phases of acute vascular injury care, including a new assessment of the implications of vascular trauma in the pre-hospital setting (i.e. point of injury and en-route care). Covers the emerging hot topics, including endovascular procedures to manage trauma, contemporary use of vascular shunts, and a modern reappraisal of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta for shock. An innovative chapter on the systems approach and quality improvement in vascular trauma, offering information and tactics for all providers wishing to understand how clinical systems underpin patient outcome and recovery from this challenging injury pattern. A combined civilian and military authorship from internationally recognized authorities draws on the best available evidence, experience, and lessons-learned from Afghanistan, Iraq, and the "urban battlefield."

The PREHOSPITAL TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT (PHTLS) course is a unique continuing education program created from the real need in EMS education for additional training in the handling of trauma patients. The course and the book, PREHOSPITAL TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT, educate EMS personnel to identify, stabilize, treat, and transport trauma patients with the highest level of care. Prehospital patients who are stabilized and then quickly transported to an appropriate medical facility have the best chance of survival. Identifying the mechanism of injury, interpreting signs and symptoms, understanding pathophysiology, recognizing life-threatening injuries, and honing assessment skills all help the EMT to identify a trauma patient with multiple injuries and perform appropriate interventions. PHTLS treats the trauma patient as a special entity, with needs that differ from those of other patients. Provides the most current information available through revised and updated chapters which adhere to the new 1998 ATLS guidelines. Features comprehensive coverage for both basic and advanced level training. Emphasizes the foundation of trauma care, specifically understanding the mechanism of injury. Includes in-depth coverage of anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, assessment and management of trauma to key body systems and regions. Covers special patient populations, including pediatrics, geriatrics and pregnant patients, to refresh the EMT regarding the importance of understanding the differences in physiology and presentation in these special populations. Contains an entire chapter devoted to trauma care in the military, because prehospital care in military situations is indisputably different than most civilian trauma situations. Promotes clear, practical understanding of the proper procedures for airway and spine skills with separate chapters that outline techniques and procedures with photos alongside text in a step-by-step format. Includes chapter objectives, summary, and review questions to help the student self-assess and pick out key points from the material. Includes case scenarios and conclusions to promote critical thinking and allow the student to see real application of the concepts discussed in each chapter. Provides a comprehensive glossary and bibliography to direct the reader when further study on a particular topic is desired. Incorporates more than 300 full-color illustrations, many updated and enlarged from previous edition, to aid in visual learning, comprehension of material, explanation of difficult concepts, and keep reader's interest.
