9780750688079: Minor Veterinary Surgery: A Handbook for Veterinary Nurses, 1e

As the role of the veterinary nurse evolves, it encompasses a far wider range of responsibilities and specialties. This book is aimed at those veterinary nurses who are interested in learning more about surgical techniques as well as for those who already perform minor surgery.

Minor Veterinary Surgery brings together all the information needed for a veterinary nurse to confidently approach minor surgical procedures in small animals. Based on a thorough grounding of surgical principles, the book takes a hands-on approach and focuses on applying theory to practice. The author has included clear instructions for performing a number of minor surgical techniques and offers practical advice in the form of handy hints and tips making this a highly accessible and user-friendly text.

All areas of veterinary surgical nursing are covered in detail from pre-operative examination and patient preparation through to communication with pet owners and aftercare of wounds and pain management. Potential complications and pitfalls are discussed as each procedure is dealt with separately. This book will be useful for quick reference in clinical situations as well as being an excellent study guide.

This is an essential purchase for every veterinary nurse interested in minor surgery and every practice committed to supporting and developing the skills of its veterinary nurses.

Recensione:

MINOR VETERINARY SURGERY - A HANDBOOK FOR VETERINARY NURSES

This is a textbook on minor surgical techniques written for veterinary nurses by a veterinary surgeon who clearly views his nursing staff as valuable members of the veterinary team (and rightly so). It is a collection of all the essential information required by a qualified veterinary nurse to become confident at performing minor surgical procedures. Although the text is written primarily for qualified veterinary nurses, trainees and students will also find sections very useful. I was amazed by the amount of information assembled in this little book and found it very practical and enjoyable to read. Each chapter, with the liberal use of high quality colour photographs, sample record documents, sample client sheets, sample drug, anaesthetic and fluid combination charts, makes a useful reference guide for each topic. Using a strong foundation of surgical principles, the author explains step-by-step how to perform several minor surgical procedures mentioning common pitfalls, potential complications and offering valuable hints and tips. This is the type of book which encourages you to use it by applying the theory you have learned to everyday practice.

This text book also highlights the need for "veterinary nurses and surgeons alike to embrace the notion of honing the surgical and related nursing skills of listed veterinary nurses" thus helping to contribute to improved quality of patient care, job satisfaction and, of course, increase the revenue of the practice. 'Minor Veterinary Surgery - A Handbook for Veterinary Nurses' is a super book and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. If you only buy one book this coming year to update/start you nursing library this textbook would be an excellent investment!
