All too often, forensic pathologists perform autopsies that are limited only to the body parts that are suspect, leading to biased and inaccurate results. A correct diagnosis for cause of death can only be reached by a strict and systematic examination of the whole body. Providing a step-by-step, photo-assisted guide to complete autopsy procedures, Forensic Autopsy: A Handbook and Atlas commands the field in offering the most advanced and complete resource of its kind.

Packed with more color photos than any other leading autopsy reference, this volume explores:

  • External cadaver examination
  • Organ removal methods
  • Laboratory procedures
  • Microscopy applications
  • New imaging techniques
  • Pediatric and fetal autopsy
  • Pre- and postautopsy procedures
  • Genetic disease and DNA diagnosis
  • Autopsy protocol for the examination of the vertebral artery

From macroscopic to microscopic approaches, this volume provides detailed guidelines for performance of autopsy on every part of the human body. Using these standardized protocols and with the proper knowledge, training, and experience, pathologists can develop the skill needed to become experts in their field.

This new edition of the Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP) course manual has been fully updated and revised by a multidisciplinary team of surgeons and anaesthetists. It remains true to the original aims of the course: to encourage trainees to take responsibility for critically ill patients, to predict and prevent problems that patients might encounter while in hospital, to function well within the surgical team and communicate effectively with colleagues from other disciplines.

CCrISP is a valuable adjunct to traditional ward training and continues to provide young surgeons with the structure and confidence they require to safely and effectively care for their patients on the ward and in theatre. Designed to develop skills that are necessary in the management of critically ill patients, CCrISP integrates knowledge, practical skills, communication and leadership.
