Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
Elsevier Australia is proud to release 'Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury' by the esteemed Professor Jeffrey V. Rosenfeld.
This new medical textbook is exceptionally broad in scope. As well as covering essential basics like paraphysiology, it addresses issues relating to head and neck trauma, such as injuries to the face and scalp.
Authored by one of the world’s foremost neurosurgeons, 'Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury' will of course be an indispensible reference for junior doctors and medical students. However, the book’s succinct, pictorial approach extends its readership further. 'Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury' is filled with potentially life-saving tips to help non-neurosurgeons handle head injuries and prevent secondary brain injury – something that’s a major concern for paramedics, military physicians and emergency staff, among others.
This authoritative guide deals with a wide range of head and neck injuries, all of which are supported by clinical photographs, radiology images and line diagrams for ease of learning. Readers follow the patient’s journey through various stages, including the pre-hospital setting, the emergency room and the intensive care unit, with all aspects of care incorporated at each stage.
