About this book


In recent years a greater emphasis on the team approach to trauma care has evolved. This text highlights the need for all team members to understand the principles of trauma care so that maximum co-operation can lead to a more rapid anticipation of the patients needs. In the text, trauma care is reviewed body system by body system. Particular attention is paid to the normal system before the pathophysiological changes due to trauma. The management of these changes are reviewed. This book, by a team of authors working in the field of trauma care, is intended to equip all personnel with information that will assist them in developing the appropriate decision making skills for managing the injured patient.
