  • Information


Filled with clinical information and practical advice, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Perioperative Practice has been substantially updated to reflect changes in the field.

Taking a logical sequence to follow the journey of the patient from anaesthesia to surgery, then on to the post-anaesthetic recovery area, it provides guidance on all aspect of patient care and support. Specialty surgery, such as bariatric surgery, has been included in a new chapter to cover developments in the field and the increase in NHS provision of these services since the first edition was published.

This has been reflected in covering the pre-surgical requirements to newer types of surgery, including psychological interventions and implications for practitioners who need to cover anaesthetics, surgery, and post-anaesthetic care separately.

With easy to access information about essential information and various medical conditions, this volume has been written by expert teaching staff and clinicians who work within the speciality.

Unique and indispensable, this book gives a wealth of practical information at your fingertips.
