Perianesthesia Nursing Care: A Bedside Guide for Safe Recovery, Second Edition is an essential reference for clinicians caring for perianesthesia patients in a variety of situations, such as in a preop and postanesthesia care unit (PACU), an intensive care unit (ICU), a procedural recovery area, or on a labor and delivery unit. Ideal for perianesthesia nursing orientation and perioperative cross-training programs, it is also a valuable tool for nursing students preparing to sit for the Certified Post Anesthesia Nurse (CPAN) and Certified Ambulatory Perianesthesia Nurse (CAPA) certification examinations.

With contributions from leading experts, this reference addresses common clinical issues, population-specific knowledge, and surgery-specific knowledge. The Second Edition includes a new chapter on trauma, an increased emphasis on non-OR areas, and an extended focus on pediatric patients.
