Sections covered include peri-operative care, nutrition, burns and plastics, and the cardiovascular system. The book will appeal to students of children's nursing (whether pre-registration or conversion from another part of the Council's register), and all other nurses working in or connected with paediatric surgery. The information provided covering the wide range of areas within surgical nursing of children is useful, up to date and relevant.
