Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Carol A. Stephenson, EdD, RN, C, CRNH (Texas Christian University)
Description: This pocket-sized handbook contains a wealth of information related to fluid and electrolyte balance and imbalance: principles, specific imbalances, clinical conditions, assessment, nursing diagnoses and interventions, lab values, and therapy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide students and practicing nurses with a quick source of practical information to use in their daily practice. Despite the fact that entries are brief, they contain the most important information related to each topic in an easily accessible format.
Audience: Nurses and students caring for patients in any practice area or age group will find this book to be a useful one that addresses their day-to-day questions and problems related to fluid and electrolyte balance.
Features: The book features brief discussions of the highlights and most important information related to each topic. The use of two colors (blue and black) makes information easier to locate and adds to the book's attractiveness. Although illustrations are sparse, they are well chosen and add to the book's readability and completeness. Appendixes cover terminology, age-related differences, and lab value norms.
Assessment: I believe that this is a worthwhile addition to any nurse's personal library and to the libraries of nursing units and agencies. It contains a huge amount of information in an easy-to-understand format. The information for decision making and planning and providing nursing care to patients with actual or potential fluid and electrolyte imbalances is readily accessible in this user-friendly handbook.
