The care that a patient receives in the first hours after surgery is crucial to minimizing the risk of complications. The recovery room staff must manage both comatose and physiologically unstable patients, and deal with the immediate post-operative care of surgical patients.
The Complete Recovery Room Book, Sixth edition, provides nurses, surgeons, and anaesthetists with up-to-date guidance and practical tips on the post-operative management of patients. Over 30 chapters, this resource covers key aspects of recovery room management from setting-up, monitoring and equipment, and managing symptoms as well as clear and concise explanations of physiology and pharmacology. Specific chapters address the unique post-operative needs of individual types of surgery and patient groups. Practical tips and short aphorisms are offered throughout the text to help retain practical information.
