About this book


This book concentrates on problems generated by acute care in severely traumatized patients during the first 24 h after injury. During this hectic period, highly complicated problems have to be solved at the site of the accident, during transport to hospital, and in hospital. Multiple medical and paramedical disciplines are involved in providing care to the severely injured. This book endeavors to present a problem-oriented approach to the diagnostic, therapeutic, and organizational aspects that may be encountered.
