Overview

Thoroughly mapped to the sixth edition of the Core Curriculum, SURGICAL TECHNOLOGY FOR THE SURGICAL TECHNOLOGIST: A POSITIVE CARE APPROACH delivers the most trusted, up-to-date, and comprehensive resource for helping students anticipate patients' and surgeons' needs before, during, and after a surgical procedure. The fifth edition begins with essential topics such as equipment and supplies, operative preparation, practical and technical considerations, and postoperative considerations. Detailed, full-color medical artwork and live surgery images illustrate the presentation of over 200 of the most critical surgical procedures. Also available: the powerful digital learning solution, MindTap® for Surgical Technology.

Association of Surgical Technologists,

The oldest and most widely recognized professional organization, the Association of Surgical Technologists represents more than 80,000 surgical technologists. Its primary purpose is to ensure that surgical technologists have the knowledge and skills to administer patient care of the highest quality.

MindTap® is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build their confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap.

  • Preparing students for what they will experience in real-world practice, technique boxes highlight skills required in most operative procedures, such as donning and removing surgical attire and setting up the operating room.
  • Offering valuable insight from seasoned practitioners, Pearls of Wisdom from surgical technologists in the field equip students with practical knowledge that can only come from years of on-the-job experience.
  • Case studies with critical thinking questions open and close each chapter with real-life applications -- helping students put what they learn into practice.
  • The innovative "A Positive CARE" memory tool helps students reinforce their thought process.
  • Extremely student friendly, the text includes full-color anatomy and surgical procedure drawings to ensure learners gain a thorough understanding of key concepts.
  • End-of-chapter Questions for Further Study challenge students to apply the concepts covered before they progress to the next topics.
