This book, based on the author's 24 years of experience as a director at a major trauma center, covers all aspects of mechanical trauma to the thoracic regions. Both blunt and penetrating trauma are discussed. The comprehensive nature of the book is especially valuable because trauma victims often sustain injury to more than one thoracic organ. Each chapter includes a diagnostic algorithm for quick reference.
