"The authors are to be congratulated on packing a large volume of useful and practical information into a truly pocket sized (18 x 12.5 x 0.75 cm) book. The authors have succeeded in their aim of producing a valuable and practically useful aid for medical trainees, nurses and other paramedical staff managing burn victims."
"The authors strike a nice balance between a simple "how-to" manual and an exhaustive theoretical text ... The Essential Burn Unit Handbook can certainly be a useful tool for the plastic surgery resident caring for burn patients."
A pocket-sized reference, The Essential Burn Unit Handbook, is dedicated to the evaluation, diagnosis, care, and treatment of burn patients. Co-authored by Jeffrey J. Roth, MD, and William B. Hughes, MD, the book targets plastic surgeons, dermatologists, critical care specialists, emergency room physicians, nurses, residents, and medical students.
The practical guide covers the spectrum of burn care, from the initial assessment and treatment to the long-term sequelae. Offering a full range of day-to-day management modalities, the book includes sample orders and templates for patient presentation and organization of notes.
Illustrations and tables enhance the publication's usefulness.
