Description
The new edition of this highly successful text brings it fully up to date with recent developments in surgical nursing, and includes a new chapter on perioperative stress and anxiety . The need for surgical nurses to remain at the cutting edge in relation to their knowledge and skills has never been greater, as the demands of higher patient throughput and reduced hospital stays take their toll.

Nursing the Surgical Patient is written for, and by, nurses. It adopts a patient-centred approach to the care of people requiring a wide variety of surgical procedures. Compiled by experienced practitioners and educators in the field, it covers relevant anatomy and physiology, investigations, brief information on relevant medical conditions leading to surgery, an outline of the surgical procedures and the nursing care the patient will require.

The key nursing care issues are described and explored, with case studies and care plans to bring theory to life. Comprehensive and research-based, yet accessible and engaging, Nursing the Surgical Patients a vital companion to nurses caring for surgical patients in either the primary or secondary care setting.

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States.
