MEDIA REVIEWS
Acute Care Surgery is a comprehensive textbook covering the related fields of trauma, critical care, and emergency general surgery. The full spectrum of acute care surgery is expertly addressed, with each chapter highlighting cutting-edge advances in the field and underscoring state-of-the-art management paradigms. In an effort to create the most definitive reference on acute care surgery, an evidence-based approach is emphasized for all content included. Also, notable controversies are discussed in detail often accompanied by data-driven resolutions. "This is an extremely impressive reference guide, of clear relevance to surgical trainees and probably those working in acute medicine and emergency care. Chapters on sepsis are relevant to anyone in acute care. Some information e.g. antibiotic use is clearly more useful to those in North America. The chapter on palliative care which touches upon principles of ethics is a particularly good read."

--BMA Medical Book Award Reviewer, 2013 BMA Medical Book Awards"

"This is a definitive book in this hybrid discipline. Emergency surgeons will appreciate finding these varied topics under one cover. "

- Doody's Book Review (January 2013)
