Wound management forms the bulk of the work in Accident and Emergency practice. Each year, approximately three million wounds will be treated in the Accident and Emergency departments in England and Wales. Most of these wounds will appear relatively minor, and the vast majority will be easily treated. However, proper assessment and treatment is essential, even in the most minor wounds. Disabling injuries may be overlooked, and life-threatening infections may follow inappropriate treatment. In this book, the authors provide practical information on all aspects of wound and burn care, taking the reader from initial assessment to the treatment of specific injuries. The care and legal aspects of life-threatening wounds are covered, together with anaesthesia, surgical techniques of wound care, wound infection, and injuries to the hand, face, neck, chest and abdomen. The definition and immediate and on-going management of burns are also covered.

John A. R. Smith, Consultant Surgeon, both at Northern General Hospital, Sheffield.Review :
'There is good advice throughout the book ... basic, pragmatic and easy to read. It is well suited to the target audience of junior doctors starting a job in AandE and to the nursing staff of an AandE department. It should be on the AandE department bookshelf.'
Lindsey T.A. Rylah, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 50, No. 5, 1993
'it covers just about every wound that one is likely to encounter ... This publication is pitched at the level of a registrar working in the accident and emergency department. It would also be a very useful primer for general practitioners ... it will be of great help in the treatment room ...
it is good value.'
P. Bushell Guthrie, The Medical Journal of Australia, July 1993
