Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Penny Wolfe Moore, RNC, PhD (Southwestern Adventist University)
Description: This book presents a thorough summary of pertinent information on fluids and electrolytes. Much is presented in tables with clear and concise narrative.
Purpose: The book "is designed to be used in the clinical setting, both in conjunction with the parent text and as a stand-alone product. All the important information readers need is right at their fingertips." The parent text is Fluids and Electrolytes with Clinical Applications: A Programmed Approach, 7th edition by Kee et al. (Thomson Delmar Learning, 2004). I agree that this is an excellent reference.
Audience: "With a clear comprehensive approach, this quick reference pocket guide of basic principles of fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base balances, imbalances, and related disorders is a must-have for all who work in the field." Students and their faculty will find this book helpful. This reference should be on all units where patient care is provided.
Features: "This book is packed full of useful resource information. Examples across the life span are presented and the book uses over 200 diagrams and tables. Electrolyte imbalances, acid-base imbalances, intravenous therapy, clinical situations, and other lab values are covered. There are several appendixes, one of which lists foods rich in specific elements. This second edition has added information about clients with burns, increased intracranial pressure, and cancer. "
Assessment: I love this book. I finally understand ABGs and am able to remember due to the clear and concise way it is presented. I will use material from this book for most of the classes I teach and plan to put a copy on the units where students have clinicals.
Joyce Melius
This is a concise review of complex normal and abnormal states of fluid balance and the relationships with electrolytes and acid-base balance. Pathophysiology, nursing process, assessment, diagnoses, and interventions with rationale are also reviewed. There are special implications presented for all age groups. The objective is to present a quick reference guide of basic principles of fluid, electrolyte, and acid base balance and relationships. The authors use a developmental approach across the lifespan. The nursing process is presented. These are poorly understood concepts in general and this guide is quite helpful. The editors concisely cover all stated objectives Anyone working ""in the field"" where a quick reference is needed will find this text helpful. Students trying to understand fluids and electrolytes will also find it helpful as will faculty preparing classroom content and presentations. All aspects of fluid management in the body are discussed. Normal and abnormal states, all electrolytes (cations and anions), acid-base interactions, and fluid shifts are reviewed. Children and the aging adult are discussed in separate chapters. The nursing process with rationale is included in each chapter. There are color tables, which are concise, easy to read and sum up the content well. This handbook is a well-organized, brief overview of fluid electrolyte and acid-base principles and problems. I could use the book when I need a quick reference or a simple explanation for a student. The book is small and easy to read, organized clearly, and specific information is easy to find.
