A lab manual for surgical technologists new to the operating room
Operating Room Skills: Fundamentals for the Surgical Technologist helps students develop the essential skills needed to perform safely and competently in the operating room. The unique format follows the role of the surgical technologist, in conjunction with a patient’s movement through surgery. From the start, students are immersed in an active-learning experience that integrates best practices, core-curriculum requirements, and recommendations from program graduates and instructors. Supported by a companion website, the 2nd edition has a new Chapter 26, “Transition to the Clinical Setting”; new quick-reference guides; and updated Competency Assessments.
