Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Penny Wolfe Moore, RNC, PhD (Southwestern Adventist University)
Description: This book is devoted entirely to intestinal and urinary clinical situations and their management. The color pictures of stomas are outstanding.
Purpose: It is the recognition that the care of a person with a fecal or urinary diversion encompasses not just stoma management, but a solid understanding of the disease process necessitating the creation of a stoma as well as the adjustments that must be made that provided the foundation for" this book. This comprehensive book meets these objectives.
Audience: Anyone learning about or in the practice of management of the person with a fecal or urinary diversion will find this book very useful. This would be a great resource for areas of patient care where management of fecal or urinary problems is also infrequent, such as rural hospitals. The authors are well qualified and credible. They are all three in actual practice settings.
Features: The pathophysiology of disease conditions that often result in the creation of a fecal or urinary diversion is covered from the neonate to the adult. The nuances of stoma patient management are described in chapters that include preoperative and postoperative management, ostomy adjustment, and complications." The psychosocial aspects of care are presented. There are many drawings that could be used for patient teaching as well.
Assessment: This book is great. It covers a specialty in a way that is easy to understand. The drawings and pictures are of high quality and have educational value. The self-assessment section at the end of each chapter adds to its value for students and faculty. It should be available in libraries and where care is provided to individuals with fecal and urinary diversions. It is a great resource.
