As an update to the much-referenced 2004 version of Emergency War Surgery, information in this edition reflects lessons learned from American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, and represents state-of-the-art principles and practices of forward trauma surgery.

This publication expertly addresses the appropriate medical management of blast wounds, burns, multiple penetrating injuries, as well as other battle and nonbattle injuries. Topics include triage, hemorrhage control, airway/breathing, shock and resuscitation, anesthesia, infections, critical care, damage control surgery, face and neck injuries, soft-tissue injuries, ocular injuries, head injuries, extremity fractures, thoracic injuries, amputations, abdominal injuries, pediatric care, and more.

War surgery and treatment of combat casualties at far-forward locations, frequently under austere conditions, continue to save lives.

Military medical personnel provide outstanding health support to those who serve in harm’s way. As war has evolved, so has our medical support to those who fight. Today, American service members face a new terrain of mobile urban conflict.

Despite advances in personal and force protection, our forces remain vulnerable to blast wounds, burns, and multiple penetrating injuries not usually or routinely encountered in civilian settings. This publication expertly addresses the appropriate medical management of these and other battle and nonbattle injuries.
