A succinct, pictorial approach to managing patients with head and neck injuries
Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury is an indispensible reference for junior doctors working in emergency or surgery/neurosurgery units.
This authoritative medical textbook covers the head and neck patient’s journey through various stages, including the pre-hospital setting, the emergency room and the intensive care unit. It incorporates all aspects of care at each stage.
Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury addresses an extensive range of head and neck injuries and prognoses, all of which are supported by clinical photographs, radiology images and line diagrams.
A unique strength of this medical reference book is its scope. As well as head and neck injuries, it deals with issues related to head and neck trauma, such as injuries to the face, scalp, skull base, orbits, paranasal sinuses, intracranial cavity and neck.
This recommended medical text emphasises damage-control principles and emergency surgery for non-neurosurgeons, making it a potentially life-saving tool for surgical trainees, EM trainees, paramedics, remote medical practitioners (including military surgeons and physicians), ICU trainees, EDs, medical students and nurses working in specialist units.
