Lasers: The Perioperative Challenge

4th Edition

Author: Kay A. Ball, PhD, RN, CNOR, CMLSO, FAAN

Lasers: The Perioperative Challenge, fourth edition,is your guide to all aspects of laser technology in health care. This is the third revision of the book, as the use of lasers in medical settings has expanded greatly since the publication of the first edition in 1990.

The updated beginner’s guide to laser technology for the operating room and other medical applications covers the latest research, the foundational physics of lasers, and safety practices.

"Lasers: The Perioperative Challenge takes a complex technology and simplifies it for ready access by nurses, physicians, risk managers, and other healthcare providers. It offers valuable information on how to apply current standards and guidelines for a laser-safe environment,” said Dr. Ball. “I updated the book because there's such a lack of comprehensive books on the market that address all aspects of laser technology in health care.”

The text even offers sample laser safety policies to provide templates for writing policies and procedures for the clinical environment, and features more than 300 useful illustrations & graphics.
