Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 075062034X, Paperback)Emergency Orthopaedics and Trauma provides a comprehensive and detailed coverage of musculo-skeletal injuries and orthopaedic conditions that may present acutely. In the first part of the book there is a systematic analysis of trauma and emergency orthopaedics, including diagnosis, management of fractures, major trauma, anaesthetic practice and referral guidelines. The second part presents regional disorders.
Emergency Orthopaedics and Trauma is a comprehensive text written to assist all junior doctors who have to deal with the emergency presentation of fractures and soft tissue disease. The principles of initial management of the patient are described
concisely and clearly including the conditions that require in-patient and out-patient referral. The essentials of trauma assessment are explained in light of the radical changes which have occurred in the management of major trauma in recent years. A
unique feature is the inclusion of some common non-trauma orthopaedic conditions that may present in the emergency setting. Many doctors find these conditions difficult to manage with little or no training in elective orthopaedic surgery. As a further aid, these sections are supported with the basics of applied anatomy of the limbs and spine. Written particularly for junior doctors in the accident and emergency department, the emphasis throughout is on a safe, systematic and logical approach based on history, examination and appropriate investigations combined with accurate documentation. This book will also prove of value to junior orthopaedic surgeons and medical students.
