First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

This is the second edition of a book first published in 1993, but it has been significantly updated so that, for the target audience, it is comprehensive and contemporary. The editors have brought together a balanced team of doctors and nurses clinically active in the field to provide a comprehensive review of trauma resuscitation. The importance of the team approach is emphasized, with the majority of the chapters being joint doctor and nurse collaborations.
