This book is intended for use by experienced practitioners in the operating room as well as students in nursing and surgical technology. It can serve as a reference for nurses, medical students, and surgical technologists. The overall organization of the book and the inclusion of new content related to limited access and microinvasive surgical procedures are strong features, making it a useful reference in the clinical setting.
