HASH(0xa10f3834) out of 5 stars Great reference for perianesthesia nurse educators. Aug. 27 2008
By Lari Logsdon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm very pleased with the content and breath of information contained in the text. In my job as clinical nurse educator for perianesthesia nurses, I have added chapters to new employee orientation as a requirement to meet clinical comptency. The new addition is up-to-date with current practice and, as always, emphasizes the critical care aspects of PACU nursing. Chapters on care of specific surgical procedures is very helpful for new nurses, as well as a great review for seasoned veterans. Anyone who works in perianesthesia, in hositals or ambulatory surgery centers, would greatly benefit from having a copy of this book and having it as a ready reference. I highly recommend using this book while studying for the CPAN or CAPA certification exam.

HASH(0xa10f35c4) out of 5 stars easy to read and to the point July 13 2007
By ESK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Starts with a review of body systems and moves on to the different types of anesthesia and the meds used. As a new PACU nurse, it was just what I needed to get started

HASH(0xa101bc9c) out of 5 stars a worthwhile investment Aug. 7 2008
By Book Worm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book should be a resouce in every PACU across the USA. It is helpful for preparation for the CPAN exam and as a refresher. I would recommend this book.

HASH(0xa101c078) out of 5 stars Don't buy this, wait for new edition coming soon May 5 2012
By the mamster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this to study for the exam and have found it contains very good information. However, I consider this type of book an investment to not only use as a study guide but future reference. It's frustrating to learn it will be outdated 3 months after I bought it. Of course much of the information will be unchanged, it's still very helpful to study, but now it's outdated. I purchased Kindle edition and am enjoying the advantages of this, BUT, info listed in tables or charts are not at all easy to read. They don't line up well, are choppy, and require you to tab up, down and sideways. The column headings do not flow with content below. I've decided to look in other resources for learning table contents for now, but probably will not purchase Kindle editions in future if all are this way. This is the first I've used Kindle to study, in fact I would appreciate feedback regarding this. Despite my two issues with this purchase, the actual content written is easy to read, yet great, useful content.

HASH(0xa101c024) out of 5 stars PeriAnesthesia Nursing: A Critical Care Approach Sept. 22 2010
By sunbuns az - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for review to take my CAPA exam. I have taken the exam before but let it expire. I have worked PACU before but mostly Preop, Phase 2 now. Honestly, I felt the book was a little over the top. Too detailed about every little system. Like who wants to go over the Krebs cycle again ugh! I had to skim over many parts to try to extract the important stuff. The test is multiple choice and usually asks questions so that you can use your nursing process in regards to pt care. I am not a Critical Care Nurse maybe thats why I found it laborias. However,If I were taking CPAN then maybe it would be more beneficial. I wouldn't recommend this book honestly. I wish someone would just come out with a book that says "CAPA STUDY GUIDE" to take the guess work out. Thanks.
