Mr. Borrie has compiled an authoritative review of emergencies which arise in thoracic surgery. In addition he describes many of the everyday procedures performed by thoracic surgeons in an attempt to avoid emergencies or treat complications in surgical patients. The pathophysiology, clinical features, and management of each emergency condition or complication is lucidly and compactly covered.
The illustrations and duplications are well chosen and presented. The illustrations of various positions in postural drainage, for instance, should be seen by everyone involved in surgery of the chest.
The entire monograph is well written and should be a "must" in reading for
The Management of Emergencies in Thoracic Surgery.. Ann Intern Med. 1959;51:836–837. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-51-4-836
