Overview

Oxygenation is a unique book that combines anatomy and physiology with interventions to provide a useful approach to a specific nursing conc ept. Beginning with a review of anatomy and progressing through specif ic disorders, this text applies nursing knowledge to actual nursing an d medical diagnosis in adult patients. Since many disorders of oxygena tion are treated in a collaborative manner, both medical and nursing i nterventions are included in each chapter. Actual case studies help to apply the facts and concepts reviewed in each chapter. Thought-provok ing questions help to reinforce learning. Diagrams help the reader to visualize anatomy and equipment. Tables help with concepts such as blo od gas interpretations. The entire concept of oxygenation from the res piratory and circulatory systems to the role of the hematological syst em is reviewed because of the variety of ways that disorders can affec t the individual patient.
