This essential book is the foundation for AORN's Syntegrity® Standardized Perioperative Framework. Currently in its third edition, this book is the only perioperative-specific, standardized nursing vocabulary recognized by the ANA and mapped to SNOMED CT®. Based on AORN guidelines, and used by perioperative managers, staff nurses, educators, student nurses, and nursing programs, Perioperative Nursing Data Set (PNDS), 3rd Edition reflects regulatory changes, changes in practice, and the advancement of the electronic health record.

The PNDS 3rd Edition book is currently only available for AORN Syntegrity Framework licensed customers. If you have a current AORN Syntegrity® Framework license and would like to obtain a copy of the PNDS 3rd edition please contact Janice Kelly at 800-755-2676 x223. You can learn more about the AORN Syntegrity Framework by visiting www.aorn.org/syntegrity or www.csc.com/syntegrity, or send inquires to syntegrity@aorn.org.

The 4th edition of the PNDS book is currently in development and will be available in early 2016 for individual purchase, in addition to Syntegrity Framework license holders.
