Instrumentation for the Operating Room: A Photographic Manual, 9th Edition provides a practical, true-color guide to today’s most commonly used surgical instruments. A reader-friendly format includes clear instructions on preparation, sterilization, and setup, and goes beyond other books in showing not only individual instruments but also instruments in sets according to surgical procedure. This edition includes 13 new chapters as well as many new photographs throughout the book. Written by an experienced perioperative nurse, Shirley Tighe, this resource includes more than 1,000 photographs of instruments and instrument tips in the book and on the Evolve companion website - that’s more than any other manual!

  • A logical organization covers instruments by surgical procedures, beginning with simpler surgeries and progressing to more specialized instruments and their setups.
  • Coverage of instrumentation addresses a single surgery in each chapter, showing instruments first as a set, then displaying them individually, and featuring instrument tips as appropriate.

  • SixNEW chapters are included in the updated Genitourinary Surgery unit.
  • NEWphotographs are added to the Neurosurgery unit.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Josie Martin Bowman, RN, MSN, PhD (East Carolina University )
Description: Along with photographs of surgical instruments, this book offers brief descriptions of operative procedures. Changes made in this seventh edition update and include more procedures.
Purpose: The purpose is to present information about the various surgical instruments used in specific procedures. These are worthy objectives for staff at all levels who work in surgical suites.
Audience: The book was written for individuals working in surgical suites or in any setting where identification of surgical instruments is of necessity. It can be used by operating room technicians, scrub nurses, or circulating nurses.
Features: The photographs are clear and make it easy to identify the instruments. The author uses an approach from simple to more complex and divides by the types of procedures. For individuals learning or preparing to work in the surgical setting this book is useful.
Assessment: I would recommend this book to those working in surgical suites and to those new to a surgical procedure. It may be useful to those who prepare the surgical trays or tables when they are not sure of a specific instrument. This edition was needed due to new surgical approaches.
