Written by leading academics and clinicians, this fully revised and updated edition follows the patient's journey from pre-hospital retrieval to definitive care. With a strong focus on multidisciplinary care, this evidence-based emergency and trauma resource will appeal to pre-hospital care providers, rural, remote and urban emergency nurses and allied health professionals, as well as disaster management and interfacility transport staff.

  • Patient presentations ordered by body system as well as toxicology, envenomation, ocular, environmental emergencies and unique population groups
  • Major trauma assessment and management and end-of-life care information and considerations.
