“…an invaluable reference book for the novice perioperative nurse or surgical technologist. For someone studying for the CNOR, this is a tremendous resource book and study guide.” — The AORN Journal

“As a surgical tech, this book saved me so many times. It has great descriptions of surgical procedures and suggestions for instrument trays. I used this book daily after landing my first job and still use it as my first point of reference today.” — Amazon Reviewer

This pocket guide presents more than 500 surgical procedures! State-of-the-art revisions familiarize the reader with new standards of excellence for care of the surgical patient in the perioperative environment. For each procedure, you’ll find a definition, discussion, description of the surgery, preparation of the patient, skin preparation, draping technique, instrumentation, supplies, and special notes pertinent to that surgery.

Comprehensive patient care is addressed, including psychological care of the patient in surgery, safety measures for the patient and perioperative personnel, the written record of intra-, pre- and postoperative care, The Joint Commission’s Universal Protocol and AORN’s standards and recommended practices, (including correct site and laterality considerations).

Its in-depth coverage also encompasses charting as a legal document, patient teaching, detailed surgical patient positioning with drawings, anesthesia and anesthetic agents, laser application, robotics, endoscopy (including laparoscopic, hysteroscopic, thoracoscopic, and arthroscopic procedures), microsurgery (including microendoscopy and microneuroendoscopy), harmonic scalpel, argon beam coagulator, special considerations for the pediatric patient in surgery, (including anesthesia modifications and surgical procedures).

Great resource for surgical procedures. “Love this book! It gives a nice overview of some of the most routine surgeries along with a general guideline of instrumentation. Very helpful for anyone who is thinking about a career in the surgical services!” – Amazon Reviewer

A must-have! “As a student, I referred to this book to review cases throughout the day for supplies needed, positioning and what is expected. Even after graduation from the program I still use this book to brush up on procedures I haven't performed in a while.” — Amazon Reviewer

Best book for a Surgical Technologist “This book is the best book for any Surgical Technologist. Use it for school but never get rid of it because you will use it a lot in your practice for reference. Keep it in your locker always!” — Amazon Reviewer

Perfect for practice OR prep “I am new to the OR and I found this to be an excellent resource to review the night before my cases.” — Amazon Reviewer
