Overview

With more than 1,000 photographs of surgical instruments and instrument tips in the book and online, Instrumentation for the Operating Room: A Photographic Manual, 8th Edition, shows more illustrations than any other manual. Instruments are organized by surgical specialty, beginning with basic sets and progressing to more advanced sets. Instructions on preparation, sterilization, and setup, as well as clear explanations for common surgical procedures can be found throughout the book. Within each chapter, instruments are commonly featured individually and as parts of sets, often showing close-up, individual tips. Written by an experienced perioperative nurse, Shirley Tighe, this edition includes new photographs of the operating room and of robotic and micro-surgical instruments, plus a companion Evolve website with additional photographs, flashcards, and review questions.

Over 800 photographs of both individual and sets of instruments, including whole instruments and instrument tips, help in distinguishing between similar types.
Instrument Preparation for Surgery unit discusses the importance of proper instrument handling and sterilization, including the proper placement within sterilization trays.
A logical organization covers instruments by surgical procedures, beginning with simpler surgeries and building to more complex, specialized instruments and setups.
Entire units focus on female reproductive surgery and pediatric surgery, both of which are key areas not well covered in other books.
Excellent quality photographs on a consistent background enhance the detail and true color of the instruments.
Spiral-bound format allows the book to lay flat for easier access while on the job.

75 new photographs show individual instruments and sets of instruments, including tips.
Full operating room photographs are included in Operating Room Suite/Basic Laparotomy chapter.
More than 25 new photographs of instrument tips are included in The da Vinci® Surgical System and EndoWrist® Instruments (Robotic Instruments) chapter.
Before-and-after radiograph images show a total ankle prosthesis, spinal rodding, and femoral artery blockage.
Definitions, procedures, and possible equipment needed for a procedure are included in almost every chapter.
A companion Evolve website features over 200 photographs of less-common instruments; flashcards; and more than 280 review questions.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Josie Martin Bowman, RN, MSN, DSN (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.
