The book is the successor of 'Treatment of Burns' and has been renamed to emphasize the importance of the team approach in the treatment of burns. It is intended to present burn care in the context of current understanding of the pathophysiology of injury, to relate modifications of treatment to individual patient needs and to detail the recent innovations in surgical management of the burn wound. Each chapter of this volume has been prepared by a member of the staff of the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research, and each of the authors has been part of one or more burn teams. The book has 583 pages and many illustrations.
