Books and information about surgery for doctors in low resource settings

 

With great pleasure we can announce that the revised edition of Primary Surgery Volume One (chief editor Michael Cotton. This new edition builds and expands on the success of Maurice King’s seminal first edition) is now published free online at:

http://global-help.org/products/primary-surgery/

This volume is the “cook book” guide to surgery in poor-resource settings, and as such is a must for those keen to participate in disaster medicine, and is particularly useful for those who find themselves having to do surgery outside their comfort zone when there is no-one to ask for help or advice.
