Abstract:

This book is intended to aid those involved in the treatment of severe trauma suffered during combat. It is especially intended to provide a quick reference to neurosurgeons, thoracic surgeons, and general surgeons with trauma surgery experience involved in treating combat casualties. We believe it would also be useful to the same individuals when working in more mundane settings such as trauma centers and inner city emergency room settings. It can also be used as a teaching guide for residents training in these fields.
