From their past and present experience, plastic surgeon Roth and Hughes, who is director of the Temple U. Hospital Burn Unit, discerned a need for essential information that could be accessed quickly, and in this pocket guide describe treatments evolved in burn units that have become the standard of care. They describe the pathophysiology of burns, the basics of evaluation, resuscitation and treatment, wound care, antibiotics, control of wound sepsis, nutrition, inhalation injury, general nonburn inpatient wound care, care of toxic epidermal necrolysis syndrome, electrical and chemical burns, and pediatric burn management. They include a glossary, Moritz contact chart, and anatomical illustrations for assessment.
