Berry & Kohn’s Operating Room Technique has been the text of choice for understanding basic surgical principles and techniques for more than 50 years. Highly readable, accurate, and comprehensive, it covers the "nuts and bolts" of surgical techniques in a format that makes it easy to effectively apply basic principles to clinical practice. Expert author Nancymarie Phillips emphasizes the importance of teamwork throughout, with practical strategies and examples of how cooperation among perioperative caregivers contributes to positive patient care outcomes.

    • Explains both the fundamentals of surgical techniques and today's most commonly performed procedures in terms that can readily be translated into to clinical practice.
    • Focuses on the physiologic, psychologic, and spiritual considerations of perioperative patients to provide learners with a knowledge base for planning and implementing comprehensive, individualized care.
    • Features in-depth discussions of patients with special needs related to age or health status considerations, with an emphasis on developing plans of care tailored to the unique care parameters of all patients.
