The Management of Head Injuries

by David G. Currie

Although head injury is common and can have devastating consequences for the patient, its initial assessment is usually carried out by non-specialists. This book covers the emergency treatment of minor injuries and the management of major head injuries before referral to the neurosurgical department. Concise practical guidelines are augmented by key points, lists, and clear photographs and line illustrations. The fifth book in the Oxford Handbooks in Emergency Medicine series, this volume will be especially useful for emergency room staff.
