PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY, the sixth title to publish in the Perioperative Nursing Series, is a comprehensive, well-illustrated reference for nurses involved in all aspects of this surgical specialty in both acute care and free standing surgery centers. This resource 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 more than 25 surgical procedures, accompanied by color illustrations clearly showing key steps of each procedure.
