The Handbook of Trauma for Southern Africa will provide much-needed surgical guidelines for rural doctors in Southern Africa and other developing nations, where many doctors are young or newly-qualified, exposed to severe cases of trauma and entrusted early in their careers with high levels of responsibility which they are required to exercise, often independently. In developed countries trauma is far less significant. As a result very few handbooks dedicated to trauma are available and those that are, usually published in developed countries, are not adequate for the different kinds of trauma that units in South Africa see every day. The book will serve as a pocket reference for quick diagnosis, crisis management, treatment and referral in trauma units. It has been written for interns, doctors and senior nurses in community service, and any doctor spending time in a trauma ward who wishes to stay informed of the latest developments. Medical students spend considerable time in trauma wards during their degree, and this handbook will be invaluable particularly for fifth and sixth year medical students for whom the book will serve as a mini-textbook as well as a clinical manual, and in many cases will replace the notes given to students by trauma departments. It is a book no trauma unit should be without.
