Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury
Caring for people with a head or spinal injury is challenging but rewarding. The challenges come from the large numbers of victims, the many sources of complicating adverse events, and the multiplicity of body systems that can be destabilised, the rapidity with which outcome can be worsened and the urgency of providing often complex treatment. The reward for effective care is survival, recovery and restitution of the injured person. Crucial in achieving this is a clear understanding of what needs to be done—both by individuals and collectively, within and across the teams whose multidisciplinary inputs need to be combined and coordinated.Practical Management of Head and Neck Injury ebooks lets us know whole anatomical aspect of the head and neck.
Even in the era of electronic technology, the scholarship involved in pursuing so many lines of enquiry, analysing and synthesising the findings is ‘Herculean’. Sufficient and authoritative in itself, Practical management of
head and neck injury is an invaluable resource and a powerful illustration of the continuing value of the textbook.
Why head and neck? A myriad of textbooks on head injury have been published in the last two decades. Many are encyclopaedic, but mainly confined to the brain and skull. However, injuries to the brain and skull also frequently involve the face and sinuses, mouth, teeth and jaws, orbits, eyes, ears and neck, including the great vessels, spine, spinal cord and pharynx, larynx and trachea. A more holistic approach is required. The interplay between the
various specialties is highlighted and should encourage the multidisciplinary team approach to caring for these patients.
