A wide variety of technological devices are used in the course of treating patients in clinical settings. This variety is increasing and individual devices are becoming more complex. A Guide to Patient Care Technology: A Review of Medical Equipment examines the range of patient care technology commonly encountered in hospitals and clinics, gives a clear and concise description of the principle of operation of each device, and outlines its use. The book is divided into sections corresponding to various areas of a hospital. Each section contains descriptions of equipment found primarily in that area. A special section covers those devices found throughout the hospital. After the description of each device, there are three short lists: other names by which the device might be known; equipment used with or related to the device; and the locations where the device is most likely to be found. Photographs illustrate the devices in the field giving you a feel for their appearance while in use.

Knowing how a particular medical device works allows you to get the most effective use out of your equipment, understand the applications, and helps avoid costly and unnecessary problems from increasingly sophisticated and complex electronic equipment. Often, the user manual is unavailable or has gone missing. A Guide to Patient Care Technology: A Review of Medical Equipment provides easy-to-understand descriptions of the extensive range of devices in current medical use in a portable, easy-to-use format.
