Product Description

Review

"It should be read by everyone involved in providing post operative care particularly those at junior level, namely anaesthetists, surgeons and recovery room nurses. This book should be available in recovery rooms and medical libraries of all hospitals." (Saudi Medical Journal, Vol 23 (8))

"It is a book I would highly recommend for all recovery areas, as it is an 'encyclopaedia' of any problem that may arise." (Intensive and Critical Care Nursing, 18)

Format: Paperback
Good textbooks aimed specifically at patient care in the Recovery Room are regrettably few and far between. In this book Hatfield and Tronson have focussed on many of the specific needs of such individuals. Written primarily from the standpoint of the authors own practice this book avoids the inclusion of the endless references which make many nursing works unreadable. Containing much which will be of use to existing and new members of staff as well as Students of Nursing and Student Operating Department Practitioners this is one textbook which all Post Anaesthetic Care Units should endeavour to own.

Hatfield has proved herself once again to be a master of the Recovery Room process. This book is a must for all working with patients in the Recovery room. The no nonsense approach ensures that all aspects are covered in a readable and understandable manner.
This book has become an essential part of my library and I recommend it to all nurses!!!

Oh my goodness!! This book is a necessity for any student/newly qualified ODP, nurse or any other healthcare professional. This book explains things in plain english and is well written and easily understandable. It talks about more than just what happens in the recovery room. It has helped me immensely with my assignments at University and I'll definitely use it once qualified. This book is EXCELLENT. Definitely a must buy!!!!

What a fantastic book. I bought this because I was working in my first job (respiratory ward) since qualifying as a nurse and had just got a position in a PACU. I was really nervous and read this cover to cover before i started and was so prepared for what I found.

A really good refresher of physiology and acute medical and surgical management with focus on the immediate post operative period. Brilliant pharmacology as well.

The book reads as though a trusted colleague is helping you to understand what is going on and what to do with your patients. I could not recommend this book more but for the fact that they have released a new version (about a year after i bought this). A friend of mine has that version and it's awesome!
