I am thankful to the following sources which helped me in compiling the book:
  1. Operation theatre technique book—positions.
  2. Instruments—from general surgical instruments.
  3. Some references from basic concepts of OT.

  2. To have real boost towards the patient to go forward.
  3. To make the patient understand about his illness and treatment.
  4. To be with patient throughout.
  5. To prepare the OT and surroundings conscientiously well in time.
  6. To help the hands which hold the scalpel.
  7. To be there and be prompt in all crises.
  8. To be the best, intelligent, knowledgeable, kind, understanding and trustworthy operative care nurse.
