The new edition of this classic text has been completely revised and updated. Reorganized into two sections, the first one focuses on core themes and principles of surgical nursing and the overall surgical process; the second concentrates on major common procedures and focuses on the applied anatomy and physiology underpinning surgical interventions and the rationale for nursing care. Also features coverage of the most up-to-date procedures such as the impact of day surgery and minimally invasive techniques.
