Global Editions: Central Service Technical Manual

7th Edition Central Service Technical Manual

Available in Chinese, Japanese and Spanish.

The 7th edition is designed to provide Central Service Professionals with the latest information on all aspects of sterile processing and to introduce future Central Service professionals to the fast-paced field of CS.

Helpful features to the text include over 300 color photos and charts and an easy-to-read format that identifies key words and concepts. Additionally, the Seventh Edition also includes several chapters focusing on unique aspects of CS, such as tools for cleaning, point of use preparation and transport, complex surgical instruments, point of use processing, tracking systems and ambulatory surgery and related practices.

All of the text's chapters have been tailored to meet the educational needs of today's (and tomorrow's) Central Service Professionals. Topics such as microbiology, medical terminology, and anatomy and physiology are presented with a focus on what the CS professional needs to know. For example, the medical terminology chapter includes surgical terms and abbreviations and in addition to presenting an overview of major body systems, the anatomy and physiology chapter reviews common surgical procedures performed on each body system.
