  • NEW Chapter. Added content on Decontamination and Sterilization gives scrub nurses, surgical techs, and other staff the confidence they need to ensure a sterile field in the OR, from cleaning and disassembling instruments to sterilizing and inspecting them, while observing the latest standards of practice.
  • ALL-NEW Images. More than a visual facelift, the second edition of SURGICAL INSTRUMENTATION has been completely overhauled, updating and replacing every image with full-color photographs that show commonly used surgical instruments in spotless detail.
  • Proper Naming Conventions. Every instrument is clearly labeled, individually, and with its official name to avoid confusing students with nicknames and other biases that can develop in specific regions over time.
  • Logical Categories. Organized by function and common surgery types, instruments are easier to find and more clearly organized than in other books, which makes SURGICAL INSTRUMENTATION a favorite resource for any surgical setting.
  • Useful Usage. Each section includes helpful discussion on how and when to use instruments, along with steps to follow that ensure critical safety for patients and surgical staff.
  • Super Sets. Chapters explain common foundation sets for different types of surgeries, walk students through how to evaluate their sets to add or remove instruments as needed, and make the OR team more efficient with the most practical instrument choices.
