This 2004 3rd United States Revision is revised to reflect lessons learned from ongoing American involvement in Southwest Asia. It includes over 150 specially drawn illustrations that complement new material on the management of war wounds.
Designed to be an essential rapid reference manual, Emergency War Surgery uses concise, bulleted formatting geared toward the combat physician operating away from sophisticated medical support. This manual was drafted by sub-specialty experts, and updated by surgeons returned from year-long deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was a collaborative effort with the Army Medical Department Center & School, and includes bibliographical references and index. Advanced preppers should consider adding this trauma care book to their medical library.
