A concise and short but authoritative guide to the elements of early care in trauma. Because minor injuries (for example, bites and stings) are considered as well as severe injuries, this text is well suited to needs of family physicians, general internists, and subspecialists in nonsurgical fields who need to brush up on the topics it covers. Chapter 3 covers cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Chapter 25 reviews legal and ethical matters. Not all chapters are built on the same structure; some include closing summaries or references whereas others do not. Altogether a relatively inexpensive but thorough primer that should get wide use
