Summary

This easy-to-use, up-to-date book will help students systematically prepare for today's NBSTSA Surgical Technology Exam. PEARSON'S SURGICAL TECHNOLOGY EXAM REVIEW, 3/econtains more than 700 multiple choice questions that closely follow the exam format and cover every exam topic. Unlike some review books, it also presents valuable review information in an easy-to-read outline format, enabling students to quickly find both relevant concepts and corresponding practice questions. Part I presents realistic questions and review content about medical terminology, A&P, microbiology, infection control, pharmacology, anesthesia, biomedical sciences and technology, the surgical environment, asepsis, the surgical patient, wound management, instrumentation, equipment, preparation, and professionalism. Part II thoroughly covers each type of surgery, from general to reconstructive, orthopedics to neurosurgery. Reflecting the current exam, anatomy labeling exercises are included in many chapters. This edition contains a complete new sample test, plus many more problems online atMyHealthProfessionsKit.com.
