Cardiac surgical nursing

Abstract

The quality of post-operative nursing has an immediate and profound importance to the patient who has just had a heart operation. Whilst it is usually true to say that the immediate survival of the patient depends on the right operation being done well by the surgical and anaesthetic team in the operating room, it remains true that prolonged survival depends on the skill and devotion of the team who look after the patient when the operation is over. This team consists of nursing, anaesthetic and surgical members and each group has a specific and well defined series of tasks to perform.
