This book really helped me though out my preceptorship in the operating room. I was thrown in to this unit as a nursing student. the facility had never taken on senior nursing students in a long term segment (7 weeks) and didn't have any idea what to teach me or what to do with me. My preceptor handed me this book and by the end i was able to circulate and scrub on minor cases with complete confidence in what i was doing. it is concise in some areas, and detailed where it needs to be, gives great explinations and rationals. the only problem i found was the different tools. The west coast and the east coast have different names for the instruments, and the ones named in the book are more consistant with the names in the west. but other than that. love love loved it

I'm fairly new to peri-operative nursing and have purchased several other books to help me prepare and understand my work better. This is by far the best resource as it gives a great overview of the surgical procedures. I reference it prior to every procedure to which I am assigned. If one is looking for a reference to help with more detail regarding skin preparation, equipment, positioning aids, instrumentation and supplies needed for the procedure, I recommend the Pocket Guide to the Operating Room by Maxine A. Goldman. The combination of these two books has helped me immensely.

I am an OR nurse and this book has a lot of useful information about patient care during various surgical procedures. It also outlines what the doctors are doing in the surgery so that you are better informed. Great reference to have on hand for anyone working in an operating room.

Years ago, when I was a young operating room nurse, this text was the "go-to" reference for my field. Even as a retired nurse, I
find that the latest edition provides a vast amount of excellent information one might need in this age of "information overload"
from the internet.

Great book. If it wasn't necessary for my class, I'd still have bought it.
