Introduction From The Editors
"The articles selected for this book detail 4 distinct trauma topics, which are applicable to the trauma team in a level 1 trauma center, the solo emergency medicine practitioner in a 100-bed community hospital, and the ER doc moonlighting in an urgent care clinic. The literature on the management of trauma is vast and never stagnant. This book provides a focused discussion of neck trauma, orthopedic sports injuries, blunt abdominal trauma, and wrist injuries. These discussions allow emergency practitioners to remain knowledgeable and apprised of hot topics in our field in order to provide the best possible care for the patient. Management of abdominal and neck trauma is variable in different shops across the country. Recent literature has addressed lingering questions and challenged old dogma. While less controversial, the management of orthopedic and wrist trauma is constantly manipulated to lessen the inconvenience to patients while increasing the efficiency of their treatment in the emergency room. Emergency Medicine Practice strives to provide its readers with evidence-based perspectives on clinical care. We hope that this volume of The Emergency Medicine Practice Clinical Excellence Series will fine tune your management of trauma and provoke inquiries into current practice." -- Matthew S. Friedman, MD and Benjamin W. Friedman, MS, FAAEM
