Summary This manual provides a practical approach to operative trauma management. Written entirely by physicians who care for critically injured patients every day, the manual features a practical hands on approach to operative trauma care that represents the principles used by the faculty at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore Maryland.
