About the Authors
  • Recent changes in medical roles and responsibilities have raised the profile of Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs). The level of knowledge is vast, and exams must be taken working towards statutory registration. This is the first in a series of three books providing comprehensive information for healthcare staff working in the operating department. Topics covered include anaesthesia, critical care, post-interventional care, enhancing care delivery, professional practice, leadership and resource management. The clear and concise format is ideally suited to study, qualification and for continued reference during practice. Written by specialists with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and incorporating problem-based learning using case studies, this book will be essential reading for ODPs and theatre nurses throughout the UK, in Australia where the same structures have been adopted, and worldwide for all professionals working in operating departments.

    • Combines comprehensive information for learning with practical guidance
    • Integrates the results from research articles into useful, clinically orientated summaries of diagnosis, treatment and patient management
    • A clinical decision-making resource for healthcare professionals in the operating department

    Reviews & endorsements

    'It delivers on a plethora of topics, both clinical and professional, giving practical guidance for today's contemporary anaesthetic practitioner. I particularly found the historical element that is introduced in appropriate chapters fascinating.' Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology

    This text is a valuable resource for registered nurses working in this area. … The text is easy to understand and bold paragraphs headings facilitate the search for relevant information. … The chapters dealing with ECGs, information pumps, blood gas analysis and mechanical ventilation extremely useful, especially for practitioners working in post-operative recovery areas. … As roles have changed to meet the demands of the modern health service, so this text provides the essential background to enable practitioners to continue to fulfil the requirements of governance and safe practice.' Nursing Standard
