Recovery from surgery and anaesthesia is an important subject about which relatively little has been written. The recovery room links the operating theatre to the wards, and immediate postoperative care is provided for patients as they regain consciousness after anaesthesia. In this book, the authors provide practical advice and theoretical information to enable those working in recovery rooms to make the transition from anaesthesia to consciousness as easy as possible for their patients. The book is divided into three sections; setting up a recovery room, including equipment, staffing and infection control; patient care in the recovery room, including routine management of recovery from various types of surgery, management of patients with special needs, and dealing with emergencies; and material for further study and teaching.
