about

This book describes the underlying mechanisms and pathophysiological processes that relate to various childhood injuries, and brings together experimental and empirical data that determine the rational management of injury in childhood. It also deals with the wider issues of service organization and rehabilitation. The book describes the most common causes and types of injury encountered in the young, including trauma, head injury, near drowning and burns. It also deals with essential aspects of effective hospital management of injury, including trauma scoring, life support and nutritional support. It is intended for trainees and consultants in pediatrics, pediatric surgery, accident and emergency medicine, anesthesia, and intensive care, and it will also serve as a source book for medical and nonmedical researchers.
