Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Angela M. Martinelli(Boston College School of Nursing)
Description: This sixth edition is designed to aid the practitioner and student nurse in identifying interventions associated with specific nursing diagnoses as proposed by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association. The book covers the nursing process; assessment tools; plans and documentation; patient situations; diagnoses and associated interventions; and health problems with related diagnoses.
Purpose: It is intended to be a guide for the practitioner and the student nurse.
Audience: Practicing nurses and student nurses working in all clinical settings are the audience.
Features: References are current and include research studies. The book is well organized with subheadings for easy location of contents. It is pocket-sized and adequately spaced for easy reading. It is sturdy, attractive, and moisture and soil resistant. It provides the novice nurse with health problems along with the associated nursing diagnoses.
Assessment: The depth and scope of material provided is excellent. Assessment tools provide the reader with complete guidelines for data collection. Nursing diagnoses are organized according to nursing focus, allowing for accurate interpretation of diagnosis and for learning by the novice clinician. The section that contains rationale for care lacks depth. The title implies that rationale will be given throughout the text. The reader is not informed why fever is a sign of infection (endogenous pyrogen act on the temperature-regulating center in the hypothalamus) or why chills occur (the hypothalamus then activates the autonomic nervous system to stimulate increased muscle tone, and decreased perspiration and blood flow to periphery). I realize that space is a problem in providing in-depth physiologic rationale(s) for care, but the title leads one to expect that rationale for care is a major focus of the book.
