This introductory text of surgical nursing outlines the basic principles and procedures in all of the main areas of surgery. It is particulary relevant to the needs of P2000 students and incorporates research-based material, exercises and question/answer sections.
This text outlines the basic principles and practice in all main areas of surgery. In Section One the reader is taken through the stages undergone by a patient progressing through surgery and convalescence. Section Two covers the various specialties of surgical nursing, including neurosurgery, ear, nose and throat surgery, ophthalmic, breast, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynaecological, vascular and orthopaedic surgery. Each of these chapters is written by an author with specialised knowledge in the field, and reflects their own personal style and approach. The chapters offer practical suggestions for the pre- and post-operative care associated with the most common operative procedures, and consider long term implications of surgery and convalescence. Recent developments and future trends are identified, including day surgery, and the growth of endoscopic and minimally invasive procedures.
This book has been developed for and with the help of Project 2000 students and is, therefore, particularly relevant to their needs. As such it incorporates research-based material and interactive student activities. Patient quotes enliven the text and provide valuable insight into the patient's perspective, which can easily be overlooked by busy nurses. There is also a helpful and extensive glossary of key terms, as well as references and further reading.
