Trauma is an outstanding effort by editors and contributors of stature in providing an authoritative textbook to learners at all levels in multiple disciplines.

The fifth edition includes many extensively rewritten chapters as well as new chapters on “Rural Trauma,” “Surgeon-Performed Ultrasound in Trauma and Surgical Critical Care,” and “Genetic and Genomic Aspects of the Immunoinflammatory Response.” Chapter commentaries have been sought where previously absent, unifying the material throughout the textbook.
