An extremely important duty of the veterinary nurse is that of assisting the surgeon in theatre. This chapter covers the nursing techniques that are necessary to be able to fulfil this role effectively, efficiently and safely.
This part of the book focuses on patient care and medical terminology whist the preceding chapter entitled Theatre Practice concentrates on the maintenance of the theatre and equipment involved. Anaesthesia is also a key subject related to surgical nursing. This has its own chapter (Part II - Chapter 3).
If you are studying this guide in the order that the chapters are numbered, you may find that some parts of several of the topics below have been covered elsewhere. References have been stated to enable you to refer back to other relevant information.
