A unique "survival manual" for clinicians new to the operating room

This one-of-a-kind resource answers all the questions that newbie clinicians , nurses, and allied health workers have about the Operating Room but are afraid to ask. It is a complete and candid explanation of the sights, sounds, technologies, personalities, and culture that readers will experience when they enter that complex, stress-inducing world. Introduction to the Operating Room delivers the practical, real-world guidance newcomers need to ensure patient safety and their own career success.

The book is logically divided into two sections: Part 1 discusses the people of the Operating Room and includes companion video interviews that clarify roles and expectations. This section also delves into the politics and culture of the Operating Room. Part 2 is devoted to the equipment of the Operating Room.

* The first book to combine a description of OR people/culture/rules with discussion of equipment/technology

* Includes a valuable glossary of "Operating Speak" that translates the language of the Operating Room to everyday language

* A great resource to help readers impress the attendings and staff of the Operating Room
