This new edition meets the requirements of the revised Core Curriculum for Surgical Technologists, 5th edition. It is written by surgical technologists for surgical technologists. The content focuses on the concepts and skill development (cognitive and procedural) required of surgical technologists in the operative environment. The text uses the A POSitive CARE approach to surgical problem solving that concentrates on the ability of the surgical technologist to predict the patient's and surgeon's needs through the intraoperative period. The goal is for the surgical technologist to apply this model in daily practice for maximum efficiency and effectiveness during the surgical procedure. The surgical procedures included in the text were selected for their instructive value and because the skills demonstrated can be applied to many other procedures.
