ANNOUNCING: The long awaited 3rd US Revision of the EMERGENCY WAR SURGERY handbook has been released, and is available online in PDF:
From the preface:
"It is time for another revision of the Emergency War Surgery (EWS) handbook! In addition to the fundamental advances in the management of victims of trauma since the 1988 edition, the format of the earlier versions was distinctly "user unfriendly" ... Our intent is that if given a choice of bringing a single book on a rapid or prolonged deployment, today's military surgeon would choose this edition over any other trauma book."
