Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Julie A Warren, RN, MSN, CCRN (Presbyterian Healthcare Services)
Description: This is a comprehensive pediatric surgical nursing reference describing numerous conditions that require surgical intervention. Also included is pertinent embryology that contributed to the defect, the pathophysiology, the surgical repair, and the nursing care involved. Pediatric growth and development issues surrounding surgery, pain assessment and management, and nutritional issues are also discussed.
Purpose: This is intended as a resource for pediatric nurses, nursing students, and lecturers/educators working in a surgical clinical environment.
Audience: The book is written for anyone working with pediatric patients in the surgical setting, particularly nurses and nursing students. The authors are all specialists in their surgical fields and the book is written with a strong research base.
Features: The introductory chapters contain generic information about growth and development, family-centered care, and legal/ethical issues. Subsequent chapters focus on preparing the pediatric patient for surgery, pain management, and nutrition. Thereafter, chapters are divided by body systems describing the most common surgical conditions for that system and the surgical repair. There are numerous schematic pictures along with several photographs. Future editions should strive to add more photographs when feasible.
Assessment: Although much of the information in this book may be found scattered in many pediatric nursing textbooks, it is quite useful to have a single, comprehensive book dedicated to the specialty of pediatric surgical nursing that describes pediatric conditions requiring surgical intervention.
