As per the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology ..

Anatomy and physiology, a key part of the core curriculum in surgical technology, is the central basic science course around which the knowledge of surgical technology revolves. However, most conventional A&P books do not cover the surgical aspects of anatomy and physiology that the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology requires. Surgical Anatomy and Physiology

Upon successful completion of the Surgical Technology Program, the student will have fulfilled the clinical case requirements as established by the 6th edition of the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology published by the Association of Surgical Technologists. The student must have a total of 30 total surgical cases in general surgery (20 first scrubs & 10 second scrubs). In specialty surgery, a total of 90 total surgical cases (60 first scrubs & 30 second scrubs) is required. Specialties include surgical procedures in orthopedics, otorhinolaryngology, genitourinary, obstetrics, gynecology, ophthalmic, oral/maxillofacial, plastic & reconstructive, cardiothoracic, peripheral vascular, pediatrics, & neurosurgical. The total amount of procedures cases scrubbed for the duration of the entire Surgical Technology Program must exceed 120 with 80 of the cases being first scrubs & 40 cases being second scrubs.

Anatomy and physiology, a key part of the core curriculum in surgical technology, is the central basic science course around which the knowledge of surgical technology revolves. However, most conventional A&P books do not cover the surgical aspects of anatomy and physiology that the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology requires. Surgical Anatomy and Physiology for the Surgical Technologist provides the basic concepts of A&P and applies them to practical surgery. Throughout the book, examples show how the anatomy and physiology of a particular body system or organ relates to a surgical procedure. This resource includes case studies, review questions, key terms, objectives for each chapter, and information boxes that tie specific anatomical elements to surgical practice. This book meets the requirements of the current edition of the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology.
