Positioning Patients for Surgery
This volume is a practical, procedure-by-procedure guide to patient positioning for about 50 of the most common surgical procedures, written by a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, nurses, ODAs and anaesthetists. Positioning for each procedure is described in detail and points of interest or potential hazards discussed where appropriate. Each procedure is clearly illustrated using photographs and explanatory line diagrams. Positioning Patients for Surgery is an invaluable guide for all theatre-based healthcare professionals.
