Editorial Reviews


'Most trauma textbooks are written from a surgical perspective. Trauma: A Comprehensive Emergency Medicine Approach stands apart in that it is aimed toward practising emergency physicians, residents, nurses, and nurse practitioners, as well as internists and family physicians ... The book is a delight to read. The editors are to be commended for maintaining a consistent style, language, and organization across the chapters. The writing is clear and concise, and the chapter lengths are digestible; with few exceptions, each chapter can easily be read in 30 to 45 minutes.' Journal of the American Medical Association

'... well written, nicely illustrated ...' Doody's Notes

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By James Li on January 24, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is a remarkable book and a welcome addition to the literature of emergency medicine. Many years in preparation, it is the combined effort of over a hundred authors. The result is a surprisingly tight, relevant, and expert text that will lend itself well as an on-the-job reference or as a guide for the study of state-of-the-art concepts in how to best manage trauma in the emergency room.

The text does a good job of providing a broad perspective on the many varied aspects of trauma without trying to be exhaustive. For example, the section on trauma procedures is exceptional, concise, and goes over those types of procedures that are unique to the emergency department, not the operating room. These include femoral nerve blocks (with illustrations of the needed anatomy by bedside ultrasound), flexor sheath digital blocks, DPLs, crics, and intraosseus access, all accompanied by beautiful step-by-step photographs.

I would have purchased the text for the procedural section alone. It's that good.

Overall, the text is obsessively edited, expertly referenced, and evidence based. Previously controversial subjects such as emergency room thoracotomy (written by a surgeon and emergency physician) are discussed dispassionately and objectively, a refreshing change from prior texts that questioned whether emergency physicians should be allowed to perform surgical procedures at all.

Publication by Cambridge University Press ensured the text was laid out for frequent use. The design is beautiful, something I appreciate from years of working in print prior to becoming an emergency physician. Tables and illustrations are liberally sprinkled throughout the body and are set off with color and a san serif typeface, making them easy to find and read.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John Marshall on February 16, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is very well written, extremely useful text. The chapters provide enough background information to be useful and engaging for seasoned attending staff, but are not overwhelming. The diagrams and images are exceptionally clear. Several of my residents have spent time with the book and found it accessible and enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to refresh or deepen their understanding of Emergency Department trauma care.
