Anatomy & Physiology is part of the core curriculum in surgical technology and is the key basic science course around which the knowledge of surgical technology revolves. However, most conventional A & P textbooks do not cover the surgical aspects of A & P that surgical technologists require. This textbook provides the basic concepts of A & P with the important addition of surgical A & P. It addresses the implications for the surgical technologist in understanding the surgical A & P as related to each body system. Throughout the textbook examples are given as to how the A & P of a particular body system or organ relates to a surgical procedure. The textbook includes two case studies, review questions, key terms, and objectives for each chapter including information boxes that give brief descriptions of surgical procedures and information. The textbook meets the requirements of the current edition of the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology. Benefits: *Addresses surgical anatomy & physiology. *Two surgical case studies per chapter that tie in surgical A & P information. *Information boxes that briefly describe surgical procedures to correlate the surgical A & P information. *Meets the requirements of the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology. *Radiographic illustrations that reflect the surgical A & P that is presented in the textbook.
