This newly revised third edition of Nursing Procedures contains clearly written, easy-to-use instructions on how to perform virtually every nursing procedure from the most basic to those using the latest technology such as transcranial Doppler monitoring. Among the key topics you'll find are signal-averaged ECG, automated external defibrillation, vascular access devices, PICCs, chemotherapeutic drug preparation and handling, retrograde intubation, latex allergy protocols, and functional assessment of elderly patients." "Illustrated with more than 500 illustrations, photographs, and charts enhance your understanding of the life procedures. And logos call your attention to important cautions, emergency procedures, home care tips, and variations in care for pediatric and elderly patients.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Penny Wolfe Moore, RNC, PhD (Southwestern Adventist University)
Description: This third edition includes information on bedside care, equipment, nursing alerts, complications, and documentation. There are many drawings and a few photographs — all are in black, white, and pink.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide nurses with "quick and easy access to a full range of nursing interventions presented in a clear easy to use format." The index is very complete and the procedures range from how to admit a patient to cardioversion and external pacing.
Audience: The authors state this text will be useful to experienced nurses to "broaden their practice" and for the nursing student and new graduate for "an essential reference for sound nursing care." I see this text as useful in developing procedures for a nursing care area or even adopting selected procedures from the text. The authors are credible and an extensive list of contributors is given.
Features: In section one a discussion of fundamental nursing interventions is followed by eight chapters of interventions organized by body systems. A standard format is used including an introduction, equipment, implementation, and special considerations. When indicated, special information about home care, complications, and documentation is provided. Elder and pediatric alerts are also included.
Assessment: This text is procedure specific and therefore smaller than Nettina's The Lippincott Manual of Nursing Practice, 6th Edition (1996). Therefore, if you want simple to complex procedures only, this text will be for you. The pink, black, and white format is a little boring but surprisingly complete. This is an excellent addition to a personal or academic library, the skills lab of a nursing school, and every patient care unit.
