Full text of Emergency War Surgery (2004) 3rd US revision Produced by the Borden Institute, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, 2004.
Although called the 3rd US Revision, this edition of Emergency War Surgery represents an entirely new Handbook. All material is new and revised to reflect lessons learned from ongoing American involvement in Southwest Asia. The Handbook takes a bulleted manual style in order to optimize its use as a rapid reference. Drafted by subspecialty experts, it was then updated by surgeons returned from yearlong deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. A collaborative effort of the Borden Institute and the AMEDD Center & School, this Handbook is an essential tool for the management of forward combat trauma.
