Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole A. Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (Council of International Neonatal Nurses)
Description: This book, urported to be an all-in-one reference for RNs, presents assessment, diagnostic tests, medication administration, procedures, and surgical care.
Purpose: The purpose, though not stated, appears to be to guide the RN through common assessments, disease entities, and procedures. These worthy objectives are only partially met.
Audience: Practicing nurses are the intended readers.
Features: A quick health assessment section begins the book before it moves into common complaints, then to common lab tests, surgical care, and finally into specialized topics including pain management, drug administration, complementary therapies, end of life, and documentation. The front end-note page lists English and Spanish terms used in these areas. The back flap end-note contains crisis lab values and table of equivalents for temperatures and drug calculations. Age alerts are scattered throughout the text. The major shortcomings are the lack of attention given to neonates, infants, and extreme elderly patients.
Assessment: As the title suggests, this is a portable RN reference, but it contains no references, little emphasis on special populations, and only slight considerations for cultural differences. There are many books on the market that address these areas of assessment, lab tests, and the other topics but none exactly like this one. It would be most useful for an experienced RN who could easily find the needed materials.
