Surgical Instrumentation, 2nd Edition
An Interactive Approach
With hundreds of detailed, full-color photographs of common surgical instruments, Surgical Instrumentation: An Interactive Approach, 2nd Edition makes it easier to learn the identification, purpose, and set up of instruments for surgical procedures. Many photos include close-up views of the instrument tip, so you can quickly discern differences between instruments. Interactive resources on Evolve let you rotate key instruments 360 degrees for viewing from any angle, zoom in to examine the tip or zoom out to reveal the entire instrument, and also include flash cards, timed memory exercises, Mayo stand set up quizzes, and animations of large and small fragmentation sets. Written for surgical technologists by surgical technology educator Renee Nemitz, this resource offers a level of visual clarity and realism unmatched by any other surgical instrument book!Table of Contents
