A trusted source for over 20 years, this simple, straightforward text addresses the core of what a practicing surgical technologist needs to know to work closely with surgical personnel in delivering optimum patient care before, during, and after surgery. Clear guidelines help the reader understand and follow key procedures, common set-ups, and important considerations to ensure that the operating room or environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety. The 4th edition has been extensively revised to reflect the most current practice, including updates in areas such as anesthesia, wound management, and endoscopic surgery. All procedures have been updated and new procedures have been added to many areas. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.

  • The technique section is now highlighted in a consistent box format across all procedures that makes it easier for students to follow the critical steps involved.
  • Exploration of the changing role of the surgical technologist and the emerging levels within the profession keeps students in touch with this evolving profession.
  • Three to five mini case studies at end of all chapters in the section on Theory and Techniques in Surgery promote critical thinking and application of concepts learned in the chapter, designed to help students relate to real-life situations.
