Learning all of the names, purposes, and set-up procedures for surgical instruments can be a daunting task, but with SURGICAL INSTRUMENTATION: AN INTERACTIVE APPROACH, it's easier than ever before. With a combination of descriptive text and detailed pictures in the book, plus an interactive DVD-ROM, you can successfully memorize all the details of surgical instrumentation.
More than 600 full-color, high-quality photographs help you learn the most common surgical instruments for all surgical procedures.
Consistent instrument monographs include the name, common name, category, use (type of surgery and where on the body), cautions relating to safety or patient care, and other details such as regional name variations.
Student resources on the Evolve companion website include all of the images from the text, additional 360-degree views and close-ups of over 100 instruments, animations of large and small fragment sets, and timed recall exercises for practice in learning instruments.
Close-up photos of more than 100 instruments show the details of each tip, demonstrating variations and making it easier to identify each surgical instrument.
Presentation of two or fewer illustrations per page makes it easier to see the details of each instrument.
Enhanced flash cards and quizzes on the Evolve companion website allow you to review instruments by chapter or to randomize your review with instruments from the entire text.
Alternative names are added to the book's index for easer lookup of instruments whose names have regional variations.
Enhanced quizzes on Evolve are available as Practice or Test options, and results may be printed out for submission to instructors.
