In the 103 chapters, Harken (surgery, U. of California, San Francisco-East Bay), Moore (surgery, U. of Colorado Health Sciences Center), and contributing surgeons from across the US cover general topics such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, postoperative fever, and surgical wound infection, and questions relating to trauma, abdominal, endocrine, breast, cancer, cardiothoracic, vascular, pediatric, transplantation, and urology surgery, as well as ethics and health care reform and a list of the top 100 secrets pertinent to board exams. This edition has been revised and includes new chapters on mechanical ventilation, bariatric surgery, adrenal incidentaloma, and professionalism.
