Summary Annotation Get portable, step-by-step instructions on the most common, need-to-know techniques for initial orthopaedic injury management from The Handbook of Casting and Splinting by Stephen R.

As part of The Mobile Medicine series and modeled after the successful Harriet Lane Handbook, this practical, pocket-sized book is the perfect take-along companion for orthopedic and emergency medicine residents as well as PAs, NPs, and other health professionals.
