With discussions of more than 230 of the most common conditions experienced by adult patients in acute care, this reference includes everything you need on a day-to-day basis. Plus, quick reference is easy with a spiral binding and content organized by body system. Each condition lists a concise outline of defining terms, incidence/predisposing factors, subject and physical examination findings, diagnostic tests, and management strategies so you can find everything you need to know quickly. Includes discussion of body systems, nutritional considerations, fluid/electrolyte imbalances, shock, trauma, gerontological concerns, professional issues, and trends in advanced practice. Nursing guidelines for more than 230 of the most common conditions experienced by adult patients in acute care serve as an invaluable resource in the field. Conditions are organized by body system for quick reference when treating patients. Each condition lists defining terms, incidence/predisposing factors, subjective and physical examination findings, diagnostic tests, and management strategies to provide help every step of the way. Coverage also includes discussion of body systems, nutritional considerations, fluid/electrolyte imbalances, shock, and trauma for a complete look at patient care and diagnosis. An entire chapter dedicated to congestive heart failure gives you a deeper look at the disease. Specific content, as well as online references, for diseases such as SARS and West Nile Virus give you the most current information available on these evolving diseases. New chapters on admission, pre-op and post-op orders prepare you for every step of the patient treatment process. Addition of ICD-9 codes within the chapters makes classifying diseases with ICD codes easy. New content on Parkinsons disease, gout, testicular cancer, multiple sclerosis, bite management (including spider, snake, animal, and human) better prepare you for these situations. Updated and expanded content reflects changes in current guidelines and evidence-based practice, an important part of working in the field.
