Overview

Surgical technology educators and students previously had no choice but to rely on textbooks written for OR nurses that often contained too little information on the role of the surgical technologist and not enough of the subtle observations and nuances that come from years in the field. Until now. Surgical Technology for the Surgical Technologist is the first text for surgical technology students and faculty that is precise, focused and helpful. Information is presented in a thorough and consistent manner that encourages student learning of both the information and the process. The writers' 50 years of expertise in the field give Surgical Technology for the Surgical Technologist a depth not found in other texts.
(KEYWORDS: Surgical Technology, technologist, OR, Nurses, operating)

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text approaches surgical technology by focusing on the required knowledge and cognitive skills for predicting the patient's and surgeon's needs. It assumes that the technologist must learn to think like the surgeon intraoperatively, must be well grounded in the basic sciences, and should contribute to global patient care by serving as one of several team members who monitor the surgical environment. The first nine chapters (the positive care section) cover care, aseptic principles and practice of sterile technique, the role of the surgical technologist, and environmental awareness. The next 12 chapters focus on operative procedures by surgical specialty, with a brief introduction to diagnostics preceding each of these sections. Contains many b&w illustrations. Annotation c.

    Wonderfully Written!

    I am a current Surgical Technology student and we use this book as our primary resource of learning. My instructor loves the book just as much as we do! I especailly enjoy the fact that the book is written in a easy to understand format for students- this allows them to grasp hard cocepts with ease. This book has thoroughly prepared me for OR clinical education, which begins on Jan 8. I cannot wait to get going!
