Surgical Procedures and Anesthetic Implications: A Handbook for Nurse Anesthesia Practice is the ultimate reference for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) students. The first text of its kind, it examines the practical aspects of every possible type of surgery, from orthopedic to plastic surgery to abdominal/gastrointestinal surgery. In addition, the author includes invaluable "OR Pearls" and devotes an entire chapter to each type of surgery. Surgical Procedures and Anesthetic Implications: A Handbook for Nurse Anesthesia Practice also includes safety concerns, positioning and patient effect, techniques, special drugs in anesthesia, abbreviations, and a Spanish/English anesthesia translator.
"This well-written and well-organized book focuses on the primary concerns of the anesthesia provider and delivers clear and up-to-date information. This is a valuable resource for CRNA clinicians and students."
