Overview

Every LPN/LVN nurse and nursing student has vital reference information that they carry along with them into the clinical setting. This pocket-sized handy reference has quick facts about vital signs and pain, drugs, geriatrics, pediatrics, patient teaching, obstetrics, patient assessment, and procedures. In addition, there is a special section containing formulas, conversion tables, abbreviations, calculators, and more.

• Pocket size makes it handy to carry around and spiral binding allows booklet to lay flat for easy reference.
• 10 easy-to-find tabbed sections make it easy to gain rapid access to hundreds of essential facts, formulas, lab values, procedures, English-to-Spanish translations, and more.
• Each section divider features a rapid-reference table of contents so users can quickly locate the information they need within each section.
• Geriatrics section contains handy information on medication, pressure ulcers, procedural changes when working with the elderly, proper use of restraints, and learning needs of older adults.
• Includes a collection of commonly used but rarely memorized clinical information, such as charts, graphs, formulas, conversions, and lab values - all necessary to deliver safe and efficient nursing care.
• Includes metric measurements for PNs practicing in settings where SI units are used.
• Special paper is water resistant and reusable - great for rugged clinical use.
• Ten sections: Procedures, Vital Signs/Pain, Assessment, Meds/IV, Labs, Geriatrics, Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Patient Teaching, and Facts.

Pocket-sized for portability, these new quick-reference resources provide quick, easy access to the information you need to know! Water- and stain-resistant pages stand up to the daily wear-and-tear of the clinical setting.
