Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Josie Martin Bowman, RN, MSN, DSN (East Carolina University )
Description: This edition of a medical-surgical nursing book that the authors describe as "more than a textbook" has been revised to include current, updated nursing information.
Purpose: The purpose is to help "students learn medical-surgical content" which includes a focus on teaching, the elderly client, cultural and ethical considerations, home care, and evidence-based practice.
Audience: The book is written for nurse faculty, student nurses, and practicing nurses. It is often used in schools of nursing as a primary or secondary source of material for lecture. Nursing students use it to find out about their patients and to develop a plan of care. The authors are experts in this area and have prepared seven editions of the book.
Features: The 12 chapters in the first of the book's two sections focus on core concepts related to adults. The second section, chapters 13 through 69, covers nursing assessment and management. The chapters cover specific disease processes that are organized into subsections covering anatomy and physiology, health history and assessment, and diagnostic tests. Disease management is organized using the nursing process and includes health promotion, acute intervention, and ambulatory and home care.
Assessment: I recommend this textbook for use in various programs of nursing. It is also an excellent reference to have on each unit. The seventh edition includes updates on treatment and concepts from the previous edition.
Penny Wolfe Moore
This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive adult medical-surgical textbook. Previous editions appeared in 1983, 1987, and 1992. The 2,043-page book includes the most current information about adult nursing care. Clinical practice and healthcare has changed rapidly. This book is designed to reflect these changes and has done so very well. Nursing students and their faculty will benefit most directly from this new textbook. Libraries that serve the learning needs of nurses will find this book a valuable holding. Healthcare facilities will find this a complete reference text. The authors are experienced experts in their field. The contributors and reviewers are nursing educators and clinical nursing specialists in cardiology, acute care, diabetes, oncology, urology, laboratory sciences, and case management. This is a hardbound book with beautiful four-color illustrations that add interest and educational value. Each of the 62 chapters is well referenced with current works by experts in the field. The table of contents is offered in three formats (1) by topic, (2) section, and (3) a more detailed content outline. Other special features include care plans, clinical pathways, critical thinking exercises, practice questions, culture, ethics, research, and aging issues. This is a comprehensive adult medical-surgical textbook that is packed full of current information. The colorful illustrations and locating symbols make this book very user friendly. Students and faculty will find this to be an excellent textbook choice.
Joyce Melius
This medical/surgical nursing textbook, with full color illustrations, is divided into two sections. In one, the discussion is a focus on general adult nursing concepts. In the other each body system is discussed thoroughly and accurately, starting with assessment and concluding with nursing management, including information about a variety of client settings. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive resource containing essential information that students need to prepare for lectures, classroom activities, examinations, clinical assignments, and in overall care of patients. The authors are targeting this book to nursing students at all levels. It is an excellent guide to use in the classroom and the clinical area. The book is divided into two major parts. In the first ten chapters the authors deal with general concepts of adult medical surgical nursing. They have divided the second into sections of physiological function (for example, "The Surgical Experience" and "Problems of Oxygenation: Ventilation"). Each section includes brief reviews of anatomy and physiology followed by discussion of assessment, diagnostic studies, and how these are managed by nurses. There is also thorough discussion of nursing management. Nursing care is discussed in ambulatory and home care settings, and health promotion information and acute care management issues are reviewed. This is a good quality book. I prefer it to other texts because of the way the physiological systems are divided. This book is easy to read and understand with excellent color illustrations, and easy to read tables. It can be used by the beginning nursing student and also by the advanced nursing student in medical-surgicalnursing studies. This is the fifth edition and the book has been updated with new vocabulary and current trends.

    Buy this book

    Every student nurse needs this book sometime during their program and I recommend getting the two-volume version. It's exactly the same as the single volume except it's split into 2 books instead of one large bulky book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Lewis vs. Ignatavicius

    I was at another nursing school that used this textbook. Even though it's not very colorful, the information is thoroughly covered. The fluid and electrolytes chapter (17) will be forever burned into my brain as I read it over and over and over. It explains things so well and thoroughly. It's pretty tedious, but there are no questions left unanswered.

    The school I'm in now used the Ignatavicius Med Surg text. It's more colorful, but not nearly as detailed as the Lewis. I don't really care for it. When I have a question I go to the school's library and read what I need in the Lewis text.

    Medical surgical nursing

    It is a great book, It was a required textbook, but very informative and easy to read and understand. It is better to buy this book in two volume, which is easy to carry. I recommend to buy clinical companion with this book, I did not liked the study guide, it was not much helpful. The disc that comes with this book is a great resource, which consist of NCLEX type questions.

    Useful, but lots of room for improvement

    The book is chock full of information. The biggest problem is getting the information out of the book. In terms of overall organization, it is often difficult to determine what subsection relates to what major section. The color coded type and heading backgrounds are not effective delineations. A few lettered or numbered headings would be an improvement in organization. Additionally, the book is written in a quasi-conversational style making the information not very "chunky." The reader must parse through the material to divine what is relevant. Not a bad thing where continuing education is concerned, but it's inefficient when it comes to organizing and working toward an understanding of the bases of medical and nursing interventions as an undergraduate. The tables for management of conditions are useful, but there are times where one table covers more than one level of acuity and not all interventions in the table are applicable. On the plus side, the book has good images and graphics. The online resources, especially the Key Points outlines, are useful. The book's NCLEX questions are so-so. They're relatively few in number and representative of only the easier types of questions in the test bank.

    WHERE ARE THE RATIONELS?

    From fundamentals to med surg bmmcc have though us that there's an expalnation/reason for everything we do for the patients. In other words a ' rational'. Unfortunately this book has no rational to verify why the answers to the test questions are right or wrong!!! and i think that iam advocating for many students that we do need the rationals!

    A reviewer

    This book was used by my nursing school during our ADN Med/Surg classes. There is a wealth of information but the book does not flow well. One of my clinical instructors (and smartest nurses I know)is currently working towards her ARNP and had difficulty following what the writers were trying to say. This book may prove to be a valuable reference but it is not written in a manner that facilitates comprehension for students.
