Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher James Hughes, PT,PhD,OCS,CSCS(Slippery Rock University)
Description: 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.
Purpose: 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.
Audience: 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.
Features: 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 the material. Self study questions appear at the end of each chapter.
Assessment: 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.
