On-Call in Burns

About the book: Burns is a specialised, and commonly unfamiliar, territory for all plastic surgery trainees. The variety encountered is as fascinating as it is challenging, based on unique concepts of physiology, patient workup and treatment. On-Call in Burns is a survival guide produced by trainee and senior surgeons with vast combined experience in burns centres around the United Kingdom. It aims to provide a practical and concise overview of burns assessment and management to enable trainees to practise safe and effective care. It provides a clear, step-by-step method of approaching the burned patient, coupled with photographs and diagrams that will allow the trainee to contextualize theory with clinical practice. Whether they are starting their first job in burns, preparing for their specialist training interview or revising for the exit exam, this book will be an invaluable learning experience that will provide them with the confidence and ability to manage the simple and complex burned patient.
