Caring for the Perioperative Patient, 2nd Edition

May 2010, ©2010, Wiley-Blackwell
Caring for the Perioperative Patient, 2nd Edition (EHEP002332) cover image
Caring for the Perioperative Patient is a practical, evidence-based and innovative book that identifies and discusses the essential core skills and knowledge required by perioperative practitioners to care for their patients.  Divided into two sections, the first explores core perioperative issues, such as pharmacology, communication, homeostasis, and equipment.  The second part of the book looks at more specific perioperative practice issues, including enhanced competence, patient preparation, and care of the patient during anaesthesia, surgery, and recovery. 

This updated new edition is skills-focused and uses examples of techniques or procedures to illustrate how skills can be applied in perioperative practice.  It is essential reading for nurses or operating department practitioners (ODPs) who perform scrub, circulating, anaesthetic and recovery roles whilst caring for perioperative patients, as well as nursing and ODP students working in perioperative care.

  • New edition of a successful text for perioperative practitioners and students
  • Emphasises holistic patient centred care
  • Focused on key skills and knowledge required by practitioners
  • Explores the evidence-base for safe and effective practice
