On Patriot Day (September 11, 2013), the John A. Burns School of Medicine respectfully announces the publishing of the Handbook of Polytrauma Care and Rehabilitation by David X. Cifu, MD, and Henry L. Lew, MD, PhD. Dr. Lew is Chair of the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at the University of Hawai`i medical school.

Handbook of Polytrauma Care and Rehabilitation summarizes the most frequent medical and psychological problems encountered by combat survivors and patients with concurrent injuries to the brain and other body systems. The book offers a roadmap for clinicians on how to initiate and follow through with the continuum of care necessary to achieving positive outcomes. Individual chapters focus on the myriad problems and conditions that polytrauma patients present with, including traumatic brain injury, concussion, spinal cord injury, amputation, and PTSD and other medical and psychological issues such as pain, depression, headache, insomnia, fatigue, alcohol and substance abuse, dizziness, light sensitivity, and work and family issues. Algorithms and detailed appendices provide guides for assessment and medical treatment that can be used in daily practice.
