Overview

Whether you are a beginning examiner or an advanced-practice student, this book holds the content you need to develop and refine your clinical skills. Physical Examination and Health Assessment, Third Edition continues to be a comprehensive textbook on methods for recording health histories, physical examination skills, health promotion techniques, and clinical assessment tools. This text presents a firm foundation in these subjects and continues to be an excellent clinical reference.


New to the Third Edition:

  • All chapters are revised and updated, with expanded coverage in anatomy and physiology, as well as new nutrition screening tools, newborn assessments for gestational age, tympanic membrane-thermometer measurements, classification of hypertension with risk stratification and treatment, pulse oximetry, and 12-minute distance walk to measure functional status.
  • A new chapter, The Pregnant Female, describes the physiologic adaptation of a woman's body to pregnancy, the history and physical examination throughout pregnancy, and the important abnormal findings to consider.
  • Abnormal Findings Tables, located at the end of the chapters, are fully revised with more than 100 new full color photographs of abnormalities.
  • Transcultural Considerations are revised and updated in each chapter, including new content on age of onset of puberty and incidence of coronary heart disease and prostate cancer.
  • Full color art of more than 68 new illustrations shows shapes of skin lesions, head and neck overlays, lactation disorders, thorax configurations, tactile fremitus abnormalities, and joint abnormalities.
  • Examination illustrations contain more than 60 new full-color photographs.
  • Chapter bibliographies are thoroughly updated to include the best of clinical practice readings as well as basic science research and nursing research, with an emphasis on scholarship from the last five years.
  • Physical Examination skills continue to be refined as the clinician notes what works in his or he own setting and then validates it through research.
  • Assessment video critical thinking questions are included in each body system chapter. These chapters provide a connection to the Saunders Physical Examination and Health Assessment Video Series, which is developed from this textbook.
