Book Description

This comprehensive guide will provide you with an in-depth look into the medical and bioengineering aspects of electrical injuries.

The book is divided into five sections. Each section outlines a different aspect of electrical injuries. Section one covers the medical aspects of these injuries with a focus on diagnosis and treatment, section two discusses the bioengineering aspects with an emphasis on electrical theory and human physiology, section three goes into greater detail about the injuries that can occur to different anatomic locations of the body, section four describes the source of electricity that can lead to injury, and section five is devoted to accident reconstruction. Topics include:

Characteristics and mechanics of blast injury

Treatment of brain and spinal cord injury

Teflex sympathetic dystrophy and causalgia

Basic concepts in electrical injury

The physiology of cardiopulmonary resuscitation

The heart: background information with an emphasis on electrical issues

Initial priorities at the accident scene and in the emergency department

Subtle diagnostic and prognostic factors in electrical accidents

Electroconvulsive therapy (EST or ECT)

Stimulators: historical and technical aspects

and much more
