Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


In this first version of the book Hemorrhagic Shock: Recognition, Pathophysiology and Management, the entire spectrum of hemorrhage in various pathologic conditions is explored with a particular emphasis on bleeding from injury. World class experts have summarized their benchtop or clinical investigation of severe bleeding and the subsequent host�s response. Furthermore, contemporary content experts have been assembled to relate their own clinical expertise flanked by literature consensus in the subject. Navigation through the different chapters reveals succinct discussions about epidemiology, pathophysiology, bedside assessment and laboratory investigations. In addition, an important part of the content is practical approaches to the management and/or control of difficult hemorrhage sites including the diagnosis, management, adjunct, pharmaceutical and operative options available for the care of these patients. Additionally, separate chapters are presented for exploring areas related to bleeding in unique patients, including maternal-fetal medicine, prehospital and austere environment settings. Finally, the most novel and cutting edge materials, adjuncts and pharmacological agents are discussed as well as a concerted vision of what the future is likely going to bring to the care of these patients. The authorship reflects a multitude of backgrounds and disciplines, all focused on mitigating the impact of hemorrhage and hemorrhagic shock in its multiple facets. Trainees, advanced practice providers, fellows, attending surgeons, traumatologists, anesthesiologists, emergency physicians and intensivists will find valuable information derived from the vast experiences of the authors and their concise presentation of the most current literature in this dynamic field.
