Essential Burn Care for Non-Burn Specialists
Essential Burn Care for Non-Burn Specialists, written by Jong O. Lee, is a comprehensive guide for any physician involved in burn treatment, including emergency physicians, primary care physicians, and general and plastic surgeons. Despite a decrease in the frequency of burns in the United States, burn injuries are still a significant concern, and non-burn specialists are often the first responders to these cases. This book aims to equip these healthcare professionals with the basic principles of burn care and management.
The book is organized in a stepwise manner, with clear information listed in sequential chapter formats. Chapter one provides an overview of the basic epidemiology of burn care, while chapters three and four discuss the initial assessment and management of burn patients. Chapter five focuses on inhalation injury, and the next three chapters discuss burn wound management, including face and hand burns. The majority of the remaining chapters center on a specific type of burn or burn patient. The final few chapters discuss aftercare, including scar management and burn rehabilitation.
One of the strengths of this book is that it is written by experts in the field. As such, its content is evidence-based and up-to-date with current management practices. The writing style is clear and concise, making it accessible to non-burn specialists who may not have had formal training or exposure to burns in residency. The book emphasizes the importance of burn care, especially during burn disasters, where non-burn specialists are needed to care for burn patients as burn centers can be quickly overwhelmed.
As a reviewer, this book is a valuable resource for non-burn specialists who may feel uneasy about managing burns, even if the burn is minor. The book provides healthcare professionals with a reference guide for burn management that they can use during times of need. Furthermore, this book promotes interdisciplinary healthcare by fostering a shared understanding of burn care amongst healthcare professionals.
