About this book

Introduction

This manual is intended as a comprehensive guide to the diagno­ sis and management of the burn patient. The author:s feel that this volume can serve as a practical reference for the wide range of physi­ cian and allied health personnel involved in the care of these critically ill patients. The Manual of Burns was planned and written by the authors when they were on staff together at the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research, Brooke Army Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The authors support the concept that appropriate therapy of the burn patient requires a multidisciplinary approach. The talents of physi­ cians from many medical specialties, supported by nurses, therapists, and other allied health science personnel, must be coordinated if such a patient is to receive optimum care. Although the main thrust of this manual is directed at current techniques of diagnosis and treatment and therefore of primary inter­ est to the physician, the authors also hope that the photographic and illustrative material will make this book useful to any member perform­ ing service in a burn treatment unit.
