Written by a multidisciplinary team of residents, fellows, and faculty at the Massachusetts General Hospital, this new addition to the LWW Handbook Series is a practical, accessible guide to the evaluation and management of trauma and burn patients.

In a format designed for quick reference, this pocket-sized book presents hospital tested guidelines and procedures for pre-hospital care and transport, immediate assessment and interventions, and evaluation and management of specific injuries at each anatomic site. Chapters on specific injuries follow a consistent structure: epidemiology and mechanisms, important surgical anatomy, important physiology, initial evaluation, diagnostic methods, nonoperative management, operative techniques, postoperative care, rehabilitation, and long-term follow-up.
