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.
