Summary

Practical, portable, and accessible, this new addition to the LWW Handbook Series covers all facets of care given to patients postoperatively, both early on in the PACU and later on the floor.  A multidisciplinary team of residents, fellows, and faculty at the highly esteemed Massachusetts General Hospital employ an easy-to-use outline format to cover topics such as patient care, postoperative complications, special considerations, CPR in the PACU, ethico-legal issues, and PACU administration.

Key Features
  • Covers the wide variety of patients encountered in the PACU (such as patients just out of thoracic surgery vs. those coming from genitourinary surgery).
  • Presents the combined experience and knowledge of anesthesiologists, surgeons, and perianesthesia nurses, mirroring the team structure of care given postoperatively.
  • Discusses the considerations necessary for special patient populations such as obese patients or substance abuse patients.
  • Addresses PACU organization and management, quality assurance, infection control, legal and ethical issues, and more.
