Anatomy and physiology, a key part of the core curriculum in surgical technology, is the central basic science course around which the knowledge of surgical technology revolves. However, most conventional A&P books do not cover the surgical aspects of anatomy and physiology that the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology requires. Surgical Anatomy and Physiology for the Surgical Technologist provides the basic concepts of A&P and applies them to practical surgery. Throughout the book, examples show how the anatomy and physiology of a particular body system or organ relates to a surgical procedure. This resource includes case studies, review questions, key terms, objectives for each chapter, and information boxes that tie specific anatomical elements to surgical practice. This book meets the requirements of the current edition of the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology.
