"Instrumentation for the Operating Room" was the first full-color photographic manual designed to familiarize perioperative nursing students, surgical technology students, and practicing perioperative personnel with hundreds of the most commonly used surgical instruments, and it still sets the standard today. The layout of "Instrumentation for the Operating Room" starts with the basics Care and Handling of the Surgical Instruments and sterilizing trays - and progresses to the advanced sets. Full instruments and their associated tips are shown, as well as how instruments are placed in the sterilizing trays. The photograph background and true instrument color are clear and consistent throughout. This new edition has undergone a complete revision that features procedure explanations, approximately 200 new photographs, a companion CD, and evolve resources for instructors. There are new photos that highlight scopes, robotic instruments, instruments for pediatric patients, external fixations, and instrument tips.
