valuable way of presenting information within the book and purposely sought. It is hoped that exposure to individual chapters within the book will encourage readers to consider issues and problems from perspectives other than the ones with which they are familiar and perhaps comfortable. The reader is then responsible for the considera tion, adoption or challenge to the content of any chapter. During the process of exploration of content, reference should always be made to its potential place within clinical practice and its influence upon the delivery of patient and family care. Although it is acknowledged that each A and E department is different and that the environment and local resources affect the translation of theory into practice, questioning and subsequent challenge of the environ ment, work issues and ideas should help the reader to widen the debate about nursing in A and E and its anticipated growth into the next century. The intended outcome of such analysis by the reader may be to challenge practice. Alternatively information presented within the book may support or enhance work currently being under taken within a number of A and E departments. With reference to the format, the book is not intended to be read from cover to cover. Instead the reader will find the book a valuable source of information that can be dipped into when required, a book where the sampling of arguments put forward by various contributors can be considered.
Focused and concise, this book provides trauma nurses with all the essential, need-to-know information for this specialty -- from injury prevention through rehabilitation, from pediatrics to geriatrics, from head trauma to musculoskeletal trauma, and from bioterrorism to forensics. The question-and-answer format and informal tone make the text enjoyable as well as useful.

Its broad perspective enables the use of a systems approach - consistent with the current health care environment.

The section on System Injuries covers specific body system issues. The section on Multisystem Issues covers thermal and submersion injuries as well as the unborn infant as trauma victim and sequellae of trauma.
