Description

As healthcare becomes more complex, the integration of all members of the team becomes even more important. Part of this integration requires that all team members have a grasp of the fundamentals of the medical and surgical treatments they are involved in. Written specifically for paramedical professionals who support doctors and nurses, Clinical Procedures for Medical Technology Specialists presents a clear and concise description of the more common diagnostic and treatment procedures used in current medical care.

While a great many texts describe medical and surgical procedures, there are few, if any, aimed at the large, diverse group of professionals who directly support the medical system. Moreover, these sources tend to have more detail than is required for a paramedical professional. Carefully organized in an encyclopedic format that allows easy access to just the right amount of information, this book supplies nonclinical members of the modern integrated healthcare team with a more complete perspective of the clinical experiences of the clients of the system — the patients.

Reviews

Clinical Procedures for Medical Technology Specialists describes more than 80 diagnostic and therapeutic clinical procedures from a wide variety of medical specializations. … I can recommend the book to all paramedical staff including biomedical equipment technicians and all those involved in medical technology management. The book starts with an introductory chapter that provides information about the administration and departments of a hospital, medical and nonmedical professionals working in a hospital, medical and nonmedical professionals working in a hospital, outside agencies, surgery and surgical teams, and anesthesia machines. … the main part of the book , describes clinical procedures. … The book is a very good encyclopedic resource to learn about various procedures and can be helpful to staff in a hospital. … All procedure descriptions are formatted in a similar manner and supported with the information in the introduction chapter and the appendices. This makes the book a very valuable resource.
