Overview

This illustrated resource demonstrates proper techniques and procedures to help you evaluate, treat, and care for patients in the physical therapy setting. In addition to clear, "how-to" information on positioning and draping the patient, patient transfer, ambulation activities, and much more, you'll gain insight into the rationales and physiologic principles explaining why specific techniques are used.

• Defines the terms "assessment" and "evaluation" according to the APTA Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and Normative Model of Physical Therapist Professional Education, clarifying how these terms are used throughout the book.
• Provides an overview of the impairment/disability model found in the APTA Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.
• Discusses interprofessional collaboration, including the roles of the PT and PTA in the health care team (co-treatment).
• Offers suggestions for evaluating the home and workplace of a person with a disability.
• Helps you develop problem-solving strategies needed to address real-world situations.

• Detailed, full-color images demonstrate proper techniques and procedures, calling attention to important visual cues.
• Expanded discussion of patient safety alerts you to potential hazards to patients and informs you of regulations that help prevent errors and injury, including medical errors and Joint Commission Standards and practices.
• Information on new products introduced to the marketplace keeps you apprised of new materials and products available to assist your patients.
• The Approaches to Infection Control chapter includes new terms and expanded discussion of decontamination - specifically, hand hygiene and the use of alcohol-based decontaminants.
• The Assessment of Vital Signs chapter offers expanded discussion of pain, the use of pain measurement as a diagnostic tool, and methods of pain management.
• The chapter on Features and Activities of Wheeled Mobility Aids provides updated discussion of wheelchair seating and positioning, as well as new mobility products on the market.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The presentation of this brightly coloured spiral-bound paperback book is in its 4th edition.The text is useful as an introduction for beginning practitioners and those in associate grade posts. The text would be recommended as bibliographical reading for students with referral to more specialist texts in the areas indicated above." Principles and Techniques of Patient CareMarch 2010
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.
