Overview

For each alphabetically organized condition, nurses learn pathophysiology, clinical assessment, the diagnostic tests likely to be ordered, treatment and care (including medical and nursing interventions), prognosis, and discharge planning. Pathophysiology drug charts alert readers to significant drugs and protocols used to treat major body system disorders. Readers will find discussions of ethical problems, current trends, the role of new technology, a helpful index, and more. Appendices offer crucial data on common emergency drugs and laboratory values, therapeutic and toxic drug levels, normal hemodynamic variables, and commonly encountered nursing diagnoses.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
