Cecil B Drain's PACU book...

  1. do any of you who own cecil b drain's reference book: "post anesthesia care unit: a critical care approach to post anesthesia nursing" - from 1994 find that the information is not current? i just wonder about spending $50-$60 bucks on a book that may have information that is out of date.

    I have the 2003 edition. It has new chapters not in the previous editions. Also the specialty chapter's have been rewritten and the pharmacology section has a whole new section.
    I love Drain's book and it was my main source of study when I took the CPAN exam last year. I highly recommend it.

    Before our last JCAHO survey we were told to remove all books from the department that were more than 5 years old.
