Overview

Now in its Third Edition, this best-selling handbook is a practical, authoritative guide to more than 600 diseases. Pocket-sized, alphabetically organized, and filled with tips, alerts, and checklists, it targets the key information busy clinicians need at the bedside—signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, treatments, and patient concerns. This edition includes new entries on infectious diseases caused by biological agents and antibiotic-resistant organisms, complex regional pain syndrome, rhabdomyolysis, and the new Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease variant. Also new to this edition are Age Alerts, citing pediatric and geriatric considerations, and Gender Issue icons, highlighting gender-related variations in a disease's incidence, course, and treatment.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Deborah K. Fultner, MS, RNC, CS (Texas Christian University)
Description: This is a handbook of diseases that includes medical and psychiatric disorders. Each disorder includes a description, signs and symptoms, and care of the patient. The contributors and consultants of the handbook are from various universities, hospitals, and medical centers.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick and ready reference of diseases and patient care to the practitioner in the hospital. Causes, signs and symptoms, treatment, and patient care follow a brief description of each disease. It is more accessible and easier to use than are larger and more detailed texts.
Audience: The book targets nurses in acute care settings or psychiatric settings. It is especially useful for the nurse who rotates to different areas and encounters new disorders. The book will be a good resource for the home health nurse as he or she encounters unfamiliar disease processes. I believe the book will also be a helpful resource for the managed care nurse.
Features: The disease processes are in alphabetical order and easy to access. The index facilitates the search for specific topics. The different topics of treatments, signs and symptoms, causes, and patient care are in clearly marked sections. There are tables throughout the book and important facts are highlighted in insets or boxes.
Assessment: A brief description covers each disease. The descriptions are easy to understand. The causes are also brief but thorough. Treatment and patient care are at the conclusion of each disease process. Selected diseases include drugs and diagnostic tests. Patient care includes the acute phase, postsurgical care, and discharge instructions. The book covers pediatric disorders, psychiatric disorders, and, primarily diseases of the adult population. It is a very useful and helpful tool for today's nurse.
