This volume of the new Nursing Know-How series offers how-to guidance on the latest techniques for evaluating heart and breath sounds. The book is written in paragraph and bulleted format, with numerous illustrations and flow charts.
Know-How icons offer expert tips on where to listen with the stethoscope, how to differentiate sounds, what technique works best, and how to evaluate findings. Case Clip icons present real-life emergent scenarios, showing what the nurse heard and how the rapid response team intervened to avert crisis. Age Alert icons offer guidelines on age-specific differences in sounds and assessment techniques.
An accompanying audio CD contains over 80 heart sounds and over 60 breath sounds, keyed to the text.
