Overview

This volume of the new Nursing Know-How series offers how-to guidance on the latest techniques for evaluating heart and breath sounds. The book is written in paragraph and bulleted format, with numerous illustrations and flow charts.

Know-How icons offer expert tips on where to listen with the stethoscope, how to differentiate sounds, what technique works best, and how to evaluate findings. Case Clip icons present real-life emergent scenarios, showing what the nurse heard and how the rapid response team intervened to avert crisis. Age Alert icons offer guidelines on age-specific differences in sounds and assessment techniques.

An accompanying audio CD contains over 80 heart sounds and over 60 breath sounds, keyed to the text.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Noelle Catherine Lottes, RN, MSN, CFNP (Purdue University School of Nursing)
Description: This book discusses the anatomy and physiology, assessment, and normal and abnormal findings of the cardiac and respiratory systems.
Purpose: It is intended as a guide to the latest techniques for evaluating heart and breath sounds.
Audience: The audience seems to shift. At first, I would have said undergraduate nursing students are the intended audience because the book discusses how to choose and use a stethoscope. However, as the book went on, the material was covered in more depth, so much so that I would say the book could be for all levels of nursing.
Features: The book does a nice job covering the heart and breath sounds and explaining them. The CD-ROM is a nice addition, and the book includes a table of contents for that as well. The diagrams, although not high quality color, serve their purpose.
Assessment: This book is very thorough. It would be a great resource for any nursing student, at any level, as well as for nursing faculty who teach these students. It offers a more in-depth look at the two major systems, which is important for nursing education.
