Containing many helpful illustrations and diagrams to guide the reader, along with references to national and international guidelines, the Oxford Handbook of Perioperative Practice assists practitioners in meeting the individual needs of surgical patients while ensuring safe and efficient care
delivery. It enables readers to easily locate information about essential skills, patients' medical conditions, and perioperative and surgical patient management. It covers all setps of the perioperative process, and also contains an extensive section on pharmacology, as well as a section on
perioperative emergencies.

The book is clearly laid out and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages are included for the reader, so that notes, observations, and local protocols can be included, thereby individualizing the handbook. Written by teaching staff and clinicians from the fields of nursing,
operating department practice and pharmacy, the OXford Handbook of Perioperative Practice offers an interdisciplinary and interprofessional approach to perioperative practice for those studying the subject and those practicing within the perioperative environment.
