The fourth title in the Mosby's Perioperative Nursing Series GENITOURINARY SURGERY is a comprehensive, illustrated reference for nurses involved in all aspects of this surgical specialty. This text presents all of the essential background information for a thorough understanding of the nurse's role in each procedure. Standards of patient care are discussed within the nursing process framework, providing relevant information such as health history, physical exam, diagnostic tests, preoperative nursing care, anesthesia, patient teaching, and postoperative management. The heart of the text focuses on over 40 surgical procedures, logically grouped by endoscopic, laparoscopic, open, and microscopic interventions, and accompanied by hundreds of full-color photographs clearly illustrating key steps of each procedure.
