Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Grace Walke, BSN, RN, CPAN (Indiana University Medical Center)
Description: This review serves as a study guide for perianesthesia nurses. The topics covered include reviews of systems, standards of care, and the history of perianesthesia nursing. This is the fourth edition; the third edition was published in 1995.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide a resource for the perianesthesia nurse and a study guide for nurses preparing to take the certification exam. These objectives are worthy and are met.
Audience: It is written for perianesthesia nurses, students, instructors, and clinicians. I also believe that it is a good reference for those nurses interested in becoming perianesthesia nurses. The editor is a very well known and respected expert in the field.
Features: This text covers the history of perianesthesia care, basic practice in perianesthesia, and a systems review for each surgical field. Each chapter contains review questions to test readers studying for the certification exam on their knowledge base, helping determine focus areas. This edition includes two new chapters on patient education and intravenous conscious sedation. It is written in an outline format, making it easy to obtain information.
Assessment: This is a very useful guide for perianesthesia nurses who are studying for the certification exam. I feel that it is the basic starting point. Using the review questions presented, readers will know which areas to study. It is an extremely useful guide book. The material covered is up-to- date. In the ever-changing field of medicine, this fourth edition update is needed.
