Overview

Updated and expanded, the 2nd edition of this text presents clear-cut, "how-to" instructions on properly evaluating vital signs, treating patients who require special equipment or care, and much more. Well-illustrated techniques and procedures demonstrate positioning and draping the patient, patient transfer, and ambulation activities, with rationales and physiologic principles that explain why techniques are used. It emphasizes a basic approach and straightforward clinical applications related to patient care.

• APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and a Normative Model of Physical Therapist Education, defines the terms "assessment" and "evaluation" to clarify how the terms are used throughout the book.
• An overview of the impairment/disability model found in the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice is included.
• The discussion of inter-professional collaboration has been expanded to include the roles of the PT and PTA in the health care team.
• Suggestions are incorporated for an evaluation of the home and workplace of a person with a disability.
• Problem-solving strategies help the reader address real-world situations.
• Assessment of pain as a component of vital sign patterns is now included in the chapter on vital sign assessment (Chapter 3).
• Basic concepts related to cultural diversity and assessment of the environment for a person with a disability help readers develop a sense of cultural sensitivity and awareness in caring for patients with disabilities.
• A self-study/discussion section at the end of each chapter encourages readers to think about how they would handle real-life situations.

• New photographs have been added related to wheelchair, lifting, bed mobility, lymphedema, and functional activities.
• Content has been reorganized to follow the logical sequence of patient care in a clinical environment.
• New boxes, tables, and procedures in several chapters reinforce key information.
• A new chapter on infection control (Chapter 2) shows how diseases can be controlled by hand washing techniques, isolation precautions, and application and removal of protective garments.
• A new chapter on basic wound care and specialized interventions (Chapter 11) includes principles and techniques related to lymphedema management and cardiopulmonary physical therapy.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Christopher J. Hughes
This book addresses fundamental procedures and skills required of a physical therapist in patient preparation, handling, and safety. This revised second edition offers expanded information from the first edition as well as completely new topics on the Americans with Disabilities Act and management of pressure ulcers. The intended purpose for publishing a second edition is to incorporate suggestions from users of the first edition and to refine the text organization to make it easier for faculty and students to use in an academic setting. An emphasis on goals and functional outcomes in documentation has also been added. The layout of the text includes greater use of outlines and tables. This edition fulfills the author's objectives. This book is best suited for use in a first level physical therapy clinical procedures course. According to the author, many of the additions to the second edition have been made to enhance the use of this text as a teaching and learning tool for faculty and students. In twelve chapters the areas of patient education and procedures, treatment planning documentation, and communication are covered. Body mechanics, positioning and draping, exercise preparation, and transfer procedures make up the majority of written material. Additional chapters on ambulatory aids and wheelchairs, vital signs, emergency care, and infection control, along with a separate section reviewing compliance and implementation of the ADA, give this text a broad appeal. All areas are well-organized and objectives and key terms are presented at the beginning of each chapter. Clear tables and highlight boxes of key points make the text easy to read and enhance efficient study of thematerial. Self study questions appear at the end of each chapter. I found this book easy to read, well-organized, and appropriate for an entry level physical therapy procedures course. Topics are covered in adequate depth and the quality illustrative formatting is a strong feature. Since this is primarily a teaching text, I feel it would have also been appropriate to include more information on teaching activities and to include some case studies.
