"This book can be recommended for its well written chapters introducing generalists to principles of critical care. 3 Stars." Doody's Review Service

Acute Care Surgery: A Guide for the General Surgeon delivers a definitive overview of how to evaluate, stabilize, and perform surgeries for multiple emergent scenarios. Written by prominent surgeon educators, it takes you step-by-step from triage through the operation and concisely explains how to handle trauma, critical care, and emergency surgery situations. No other resource delivers such quick access to essential information prior to the procedure, helping to ensure optimal outcomes for the critically ill surgical patient.

Acute Care Surgery is written specifically to help you prepare during the narrow window of time between resuscitating the patient in the emergency room and the patient's admission to the operating room.
