Overview

Using a convenient, handbook-sized format, this manual offers nurses quick, easy access to clinical information formerly found only in medical-surgical textbooks or large manuals. It is the first reference of its size to feature the application of nursing diagnoses and interventions for more than 165 health alterations. Focusing on NANDA-approved nursing diagnoses that are specific to each disorder, the manual also provides a quick review of pathophysiology, physical assessment, diagnostic testing, collaborative management, patient/family teaching, and discharge planning data.

* The outcome criteria are specific, positive statements that facilitate evaluation of care.
• The order of presentation of the information in each health alteration provides a hierarchy of data that enables the nurse to make nursing diagnoses and plan interventions specific to each patient.
• Nursing diagnoses and interventions are presented for preoperative and postoperative patients, patients on prolonged bed rest, patients with cancer and life disrupting illness, and older adults.

Spanish version also available, ISBN: 84-8174-465-4

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Deborah Garrison, RN, PhD (Texas Woman's University)
Description: This manual provides a concise review of pathophysiology, physical assessment findings, diagnostic tests, NANDA (North American Nursing Diagnoses Association) nursing diagnoses, NIC (Nursing Intervention Classification) nursing interventions, collaborative management, outcome criteria, and patient/family teaching.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a reference for staff nurses and student nurses in a concise format. Clinical information of this nature formerly was found only in medical-surgical textbooks or large manuals. This is the first reference of its size to feature the application of nursing diagnoses and interventions to more than 145 health alterations.
Audience: This manual is intended for staff nurses on medical/surgical units as well as undergraduate nursing students. I believe it is appropriate for its intended audience. There are over 20 contributors to this project who are either nursing faculty or clinical nurse specialists in the areas they author.
Features: This book provides nurses and students with a comprehensive, readily accessible review of over 145 diagnoses/health alterations, can fit into a lab coat pocket and, yet, the headings make it easy to read. A unique feature is access to Mosby's Online Nursing Care Plan Constructor through a password located inside the cover of the book.
Assessment: This text provides an excellent resource for nurses in a variety of settings. As a faculty member who teaches undergraduate health assessment, I find its pathophysiology and health assessment content useful to set the stage for class discussion. It would also be excellent as a resource for preparing for patient care during clinical rotations. This is the fourth edition and is updated with the NIC taxonomy of nursing interventions, as well as with outcome criteria that are specific, positive statements that facilitate evaluation of care.
