Trauma Care Beyond the Resus Room - BMJ

Edited By Renowned Experts In Trauma Care, The Book is A Worthwhile Investment, Not Only for Trauma Teams But Also For Clinicians, A&E & Surgeons.

Standards in emergency care have improved dramatically over the past ten years and the trauma team is now seen as a vital component of care of seriously ill patients.

Each chapter of this highly illustrated book is written by a specialist and concentrated on care after the golden hour.

The initial resuscitation of the trauma victim by the trauma team is described and the management of patients in the early post-resuscitation phase is then dealt with in detail.

Advice is given on communication and transfer of patients to trauma centres, and separate chapters discuss variations when dealing with special population groups and conditions.
