Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Penny Wolfe Moore, RNC, PhD (Southwestern Adventist University)
Description: This is an easy-to-use A -to-Z reference of disorders for medical-surgical nursing. Each entry includes causes, complications, signs/symptoms, diagnostic tests, treatments, nursing diagnosis, and expected outcomes. The pediatric pointers icon is especially helpful.
Purpose: Because of scientific and technological advancements, demands on nursing are ever changing. "To meet the challenges of this rapidly advancing field nurses must increase their . . . knowledge and skills . . . resources must become more sophistacated . . (this text) is the ultimate resource to do just that," states the publisher. Managing the vast amount of information is difficult. This book has done a very good job of delivering the pertinent information in an easy to use format.
Audience: Medical-surgical nurses and nursing students will find this an exceptional reference. Schools of nursing will want this book in their libraries and learning labs. Acute care facilities will find this a great resource for the shelf of each unit providing medical-surgical patient care. There are 17 contributors and consultants, all with excellent credentials.
Features: The handbook provides comprehensive coverage of nearly 300 patient disorders and more than 60 treatments. Besides the traditional look at the medical aspects, information about the nursing process including patient teaching is included. A few line drawings are used; print is black and pink only. There is an appendix of lab values. The index is complete but usually not needed because of the A-to-Z format. There are very few references.
Assessment: This is an excellent, easy-to-use reference for almost all the disorders a medical-surgical nurse will encounter. Especially helpful are the pediatric pointers. More and better quality illustrations would be a plus. The explanations for various treatments will enhance the nurse's ability to provide information to patients and families. Springhouse published a similar book, Diseases this year that is larger, more comprehensive, but not specific to medical-surgical practice. That book is better referenced than this handbook, but the illustrations are equally limited.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Josie Martin Bowman, RN, MSN, DSN (East Carolina University )
Description: This handbook serves as a ready resource for healthcare professionals in providing patient care. The fourth edition is updated to cover new treatments available since the third edition. This edition also discusses diseases or disorders resulting from bioterrorism.
Purpose: According to the foreword by Hedi Bedrarz, the handbook "serves as an effective and dependable tool" to be used in providing care to various clients. The objectives are worthy and the book is an excellent reference for beginning or advanced practitioners.
Audience: The handbook is written for practicing nurses and nursing students. There are several consultants and contributors from varied educational settings and academic preparations who share their expertise.
Features: Disease processes and procedures are presented in alphabetical order. Each topic (disease process) is defined and the cause, complications, assessment, diagnostic tests, treatment and nursing diagnosis and outcomes are presented. Nursing interventions and teaching are described for each disorder or disease process. The handbook is well written, clear and easy to read. Special icons highlight important information or pointers. Among the specific areas covered are: pediatrics, geriatrics, gender differences, nursing priorities, and health promotion.
Assessment: This is a well written, comprehensive, and organized handbook. A revision was necessary to cover diseases and disorders linked with bioterrorism, including anthrax, plague, and variola and the use of cardiac resynchronization therapy.
