Woodhead and Wicker's new text will be the foremost reference source for all perioperative practitioners. This new text is unique in its approach to focus on the principles of perioperative care in a wide variety of different surgical environments. Surgery for patients has changed dramatically over the last few years and a text such as this is needed for students and practitioners in this specialised environment. The content mirrors the dynamics of modern perioperative practice by focusing on surgical interventions in all the environments in which it is currently practised, including A&E departments, general practice clinics, intensive care units, and at the site of serious accidents.
