This has improved my surgical skills in this area. Includes information on coding, an unexpected bonus. Numerous valuable illustrations. A CD. Concise, complete, transparent prose, the very model of a modern medical textbook.
IT COVERS ALL THE PROCEDURES THAT EMPLOYERS WOULD LIKE FOR AN NP TO HAVE EXPERIENCE IN PERFORMING IN THE CLINICAL SETTING.
IT IS UP TO DATE AND PROVIDES POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS FOR EACH PROCEDURE. THIS IS VALUABLE IN OBTAINING AN INFORMED CONSENT FROM THE PATIENT PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE. ADDITIONALLY, IT PROVIDES THE PRACTITIONER WITH THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO QUICKLY ASCERTAIN IF ANY COMPLICATIONS ARE DEVELOPING.
Most importantly, this book is detailed and practical.
It begins by reviewing the basic equipment and supplies needed to set up the procedure room.
Next, the text reviews the various anesthesia procedures used for the various skin surgeries. Again, the description and the photos are detailed enough for me to be able to perform these procedures in the office.
There is much practical detail on areas that are usually not addressed well in primary care procedure books: hemostasis, suturing technique and suture selection.
After introducing the equipment and techniques needed for the procedures, the book then covers all of the procedures done in a primary care office: laceration repair, skin biopsies, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, and removal of common lesions (such as lipomas and epidermal inclusion cysts).
In addition to the more basic techniques, there is detailed description, diagrams and photos of more complex techniques. There is sufficient detail presented to address some lesions requiring a more complex repair.
Also, there is extensive coverage of treatment of benign "cosmetic" lesions, such as skin tags and dermatofibromas. For those who want to introduce cosmetically enhancing dermatology procedures, there is ample detail on performing chemical peels, using dermal fillers and Botox and the use of lasers for cosmetic procedures.
The book alone is the very best on this subject for the practicing physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. However, there is also a phenomenal DVD that accompanies the book.
DVD alone is incredible -- like having a great workshop review whenever you want.
Great for showing anesthesia methods for common office skin procedures.
In addition, it reviews all the common office biopsy and excision procedures in practical detail.
It also has some very informative demonstrations for some common office procedures, such as cryosurgery with methods presented that will improve outcome and minimize patient discomfort.
For those that are interested, there are great video clips demonstrating the cosmetic procedures, such as Botox and dermal filler treatments.
The whole text and all the videos can also be purchased for your iPhone and iPad by going to iTunes.
This makes the whole package completely portable and easy to use in the office
In summary: this is all you need to introduce or enhance the performance of dermatologic procedures in your office practice.
