Surgical Instrumentation Book Review:

With hundreds of detailed, full-color photographs of common surgical instruments, Surgical Instrumentation: An Interactive Approach, 2nd Edition makes it easier to learn the identification, purpose, and set up of instruments for surgical procedures. Many photos include close-up views of the instrument tip, so you can quickly discern differences between instruments. Interactive resources on Evolve let you rotate key instruments 360 degrees for viewing from any angle, zoom in to examine the tip or zoom out to reveal the entire instrument, and also include flash cards, timed memory exercises, Mayo stand set up quizzes, and animations of large and small fragmentation sets. Written for surgical technologists by surgical technology educator Renee Nemitz, this resource offers a level of visual clarity and realism unmatched by any other surgical instrument book! More than 600 full-color, high-quality photographs help you learn the most common surgical instruments for all surgical procedures. Consistent instrument monographs include the name, common name, category, use (type of surgery and where on the body), cautions relating to safety or patient care, and other details such as regional name variations. Student resources on the Evolve companion website include all of the images from the text, additional 360-degree views and close-ups of over 100 instruments, animations of large and small fragment sets, and timed recall exercises for practice in learning instruments. Close-up photos of more than 100 instruments show the details of each tip, demonstrating variations and making it easier to identify each surgical instrument. Presentation of two or fewer illustrations per page makes it easier to see the details of each instrument. Enhanced flash cards and quizzes on the Evolve companion website allow you to review instruments by chapter or to randomize your review with instruments from the entire text. Alternative names are added to the book's index for easer lookup of instruments whose names have regional variations. Enhanced quizzes on Evolve are available as Practice or Test options, and results may be printed out for submission to instructors.

Op Amps for Everyone Book Review:

The operational amplifier ("op amp") is the most versatile and widely used type of analog IC, used in audio and voltage amplifiers, signal conditioners, signal converters, oscillators, and analog computing systems. Almost every electronic device uses at least one op amp. This book is Texas Instruments' complete professional-level tutorial and reference to operational amplifier theory and applications. Among the topics covered are basic op amp physics (including reviews of current and voltage division, Thevenin's theorem, and transistor models), idealized op amp operation and configuration, feedback theory and methods, single and dual supply operation, understanding op amp parameters, minimizing noise in op amp circuits, and practical applications such as instrumentation amplifiers, signal conditioning, oscillators, active filters, load and level conversions, and analog computing. There is also extensive coverage of circuit construction techniques, including circuit board design, grounding, input and output isolation, using decoupling capacitors, and frequency characteristics of passive components. The material in this book is applicable to all op amp ICs from all manufacturers, not just TI. Unlike textbook treatments of op amp theory that tend to focus on idealized op amp models and configuration, this title uses idealized models only when necessary to explain op amp theory. The bulk of this book is on real-world op amps and their applications; considerations such as thermal effects, circuit noise, circuit buffering, selection of appropriate op amps for a given application, and unexpected effects in passive components are all discussed in detail. *Published in conjunction with Texas Instruments *A single volume, professional-level guide to op amp theory and applications *Covers circuit board layout techniques for manufacturing op amp circuits.

Registries for Evaluating Patient Outcomes Book Review:

This User’s Guide is intended to support the design, implementation, analysis, interpretation, and quality evaluation of registries created to increase understanding of patient outcomes. For the purposes of this guide, a patient registry is an organized system that uses observational study methods to collect uniform data (clinical and other) to evaluate specified outcomes for a population defined by a particular disease, condition, or exposure, and that serves one or more predetermined scientific, clinical, or policy purposes. A registry database is a file (or files) derived from the registry. Although registries can serve many purposes, this guide focuses on registries created for one or more of the following purposes: to describe the natural history of disease, to determine clinical effectiveness or cost-effectiveness of health care products and services, to measure or monitor safety and harm, and/or to measure quality of care. Registries are classified according to how their populations are defined. For example, product registries include patients who have been exposed to biopharmaceutical products or medical devices. Health services registries consist of patients who have had a common procedure, clinical encounter, or hospitalization. Disease or condition registries are defined by patients having the same diagnosis, such as cystic fibrosis or heart failure. The User’s Guide was created by researchers affiliated with AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program, particularly those who participated in AHRQ’s DEcIDE (Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions About Effectiveness) program. Chapters were subject to multiple internal and external independent reviews.
