Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The Clinical Handbook for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking in Client Care is a handy, pocket-sized reference for the care of clients with health problems often encountered in clinical situations. While primarily developed as a supplement to the third edition of Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking in Client Care, to which it is cross-referenced by chapter, the Clinical Handbook may also be used as a stand-alone reference text. It provides nursing students essential information in an easy-to-follow format, allowing them to respond quickly when a client's condition changes or when they are assigned to a new client.

ORGANIZATION

The Clinical Handbook covers the most common health problem nursing students are likely to encounter in medical-surgical nursing. The conditions appear in alphabetical order for quick retrieval of the most vital information.

KEY FEATURES

The Clinical Handbook presents varying amounts of information about each condition according to its prevalence and/or seriousness.

  • Overview includes the definition of the condition, its classification within other categories, incidence, and basic pathophysiologic mechanisms.
  • Causes lists actual causes, when known, or provides a risk-factor assessment when appropriate.
  • Manifestations appear in order of those most characteristic of the condition to those less frequently encountered.
  • Diagnostic Tests include the most frequently used laboratory tests, diagnostic imaging tests, and/or other testing methods, as well as the significance of abnormal results.
  • Collaborative Management lists the medications and treatments most commonly associated with each condition.
  • Selected Nursing Diagnoses with Interventions list the nursing diagnoses of high priority, with related nursing interventions.
  • Home Care and Teaching provides teaching topics and referral sources, as appropriate, for clients who are being discharged from a health care facility or who provide self-care at home.
  • Cross-references guide students to more detailed information available in Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking in Client Care.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the Clinical Handbook is as accurate, current, and practical as possible so that nursing students can find ready answers to clinical problems.
