    The Royal College of Surgeons’ of England two-day “definitive surgical trauma skills course” is run by the authors. The course began in 1997 but a new syllabus has recently been put in place.The focus is on thoracic ,abdominal and vascular injuries, caused by both penetrating trauma, such as a knife, and ballistic trauma caused by guns.This Manual accompanies the course and it's aim is to “demystify the body” and show how to control massive blood loss.
