The field of perioperative nursing is a fast moving one. This comprehensive textbook is aimed at both the qualified or trainee nurse who has specialised, or is thinking of specialising, in perioperative care. The authors and editors are all experienced nurses and nurse-educators who aim to provide easy-to-read, and easy to find information about procedures, conditions and nursing skills that a newcomer to the field may not be familiar with, or with which he or she has only a superficial knowledge.
