A full-color compendium of surgical equipment and supplies in one spiral-bound text/atlas! Here’s all of the information your students need to know about surgical equipment and supplies—their use and their specifications— in one easy-to-use reference with more than 800 full-color photographs. The first chapter reviews aseptic technique. Each subsequent chapter addresses related equipment and supplies. Full-color photographs and detailed specifications complement the comprehensive in-text coverage.
Photographs of small supplies like sutures and drugs are shown side-by-side to highlight their distinguishing features and to emphasize the importance of the information on their labels. Photographs also illustrate the relevant components of large equipment, such as tables and anesthesia machines. Where appropriate, discussions address the proper placement of equipment for optimal use and access during procedures. Whatever the surgical specialty, it’s the perfect reference for students or new staff to use to learn to recognize the vast array of equipment and supplies found in the O. R. today.
