Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of General Surgery Volume 61, Issue 1: Gunshot Wound/Cervical Spine.

The goal of this program is to improve the management of gunshot wounds and injury to the cervical spine. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Weigh the evidence supporting selective nonoperative management of abdominal gunshot injuries.
2. Select patients that would benefit from nonoperative management of gunshot wounds.
3. Perform a stepwise clinical evaluation of the cervical spine in a patient who is alert and cooperative after blunt trauma.
4. Order appropriate imaging in patients with possible cervical spine injury.
5. Evaluate computed tomography scans to rule out injury to cervical spine after blunt trauma.

The original programs were presented by George Velmahos, MD, PhD, Professor of Surgery, Harvard Medical School, and Division Chief of Trauma, Emergency Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston.
