Microbiology is part of the core curriculum in surgical technology. It may be presented as a separate course in a two-year program or integrated into a variety of courses in a one-year program. Typically microbiology is taught by a member of the surgical technology program. This text is a comprehensive treatment of the disease-causing organisms that may present with a surgical patient or develop post-surgery as an acquired infection. The text addresses the specific needs of the surgical technologist in maintaining aseptic technique and caring for surgical patients before, during, and after surgery. Benefits: - Designed specifically for the surgical technology student rather than for the general allied health population - Content throughout is related to the concept of asepsis and the surgical environment - Section on Implications for the Surgical Technologist ties concepts to job performance with an emphasis on safety and infection control - Color insert provides images of infectious pathogens - Case Studies present clinical situations in the surgical environment with questions relating to the proper actions to be taken by the surgical technologist and why - Epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment guidelines are presented for the diseases caused by each organism discussed.
