The Management of Chest Wounds (Collective Review)
As part of his work with the Surgical Consultants to the Surgeon General during World War II, DeBakey mined the extant medical
literature (and his own surgical experience) to produce this extensive review of chest trauma management in both civilian
and military practice. This work helped support the development of the auxiliary surgical hospitals, and led to major changes
in battlefield wound management.
