Description / Abstract:

PREFACE

Burns are very common injuries. Virtually every health care provider will be called upon to help burn patients through some part of the acute or recovery phases of their injuries. Pediatric and adult medical specialists, emergency medicine practitioners, general and plastic and pediatric surgeons, visiting and inpatient nurses, occupational and physical therapists, physiatrists and psychiatrists, all will interface with burn patients. It is very helpful to understand what they have been through and where they are going. However, the particular audience for this book is the surgeons and burn team members who will be providing overall direction and procedural care to burned individuals. This monograph focuses on practical fundamentals of clinical burn care. When such principles can be consistently applied, most of our patients do very well. Further, a consistent program of practical care forms a stable foundation upon which new innovations are more likely to succeed.
