Overview

This book discusses the emergency management of orthopaedic injuries. Beginning with an introduction to fractures and dislocations, topics include orthopaedic infections, open fractures, long bone fractures, acute spinal injuries and hand injuries. Additional chapters discuss injuries stemming from gunshots and both natural and man-made disasters. Differences in prehospital care for orthopaedic trauma in developed versus developing countries are examined, as are the different aspects of first aid treatment at the roadside versus emergency treatment in the casualty room.
