The only book for EM Physicians that comprehensively covers what EM physicians need to know about caring for the trauma patient before the trauma surgeon takes over. This topic has become especially important for emergency physicians because in the last few years trauma centers have closed and fewer trauma surgeons have become certified, forcing the EM physician to have a larger role in the care of these patients. Market / Audience Emergency Physicians: 40, 000 Emergency Nurses: 100, 000 Emergency Departments: 5, 000 About the Book Emergent Management of Trauma is the type of book that Emergency Physicians really need. It is a concise and compact, yet absolutely comprehensive explanation of what an EM doc needs to know and what they need to do to care for Trauma patients from the streets into the OR where the Acute Care Surgeon takes over. The third edition addresses changes in the field of trauma that have spilled over into emergency departments and changed the way that EM physicians care for trauma victims in that there is more medical care and these patients may be in the emergency department longer, and also that EM physicians will be more involved in getting the patient safely into surgery.
