Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The techniques performed by nurses exemplify the integration of knowledge, skill, attitude, and critical thinking necessary for effective clinical practice in the twenty-first century. The fifth edition of Techniques in Clinical Nursing has been completely revised and updated to reflect the significant changes in practice that have occurred since the previous edition. It includes:

  • The 166 most important techniques performed by nurses, including all common variations, organized from the simple to the more complex
  • New techniques such as Standard Precautions, Implementing Seizure Precautions, Applying a Sequential Compression Device, Measuring Peak Expiratory Flow, Administering Basic Life Support to the Hospitalized Client, and Using Alginates on Wounds
  • A total of 684 color illustrations and 118 new full-color photographs

Techniques in Clinical Nursing is intended as a primary textbook for nursing education programs and as a reference for practicing nurses. Content was selected based on feedback from reviewers of previous editions, a market survey by the publisher, and the extensive teaching and practice experience of the authors.

New Technique Format

Each chapter contains concise introductory material, placing the techniques in perspective to client anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and provides an overview of the rationale and purpose of the techniques. The presentation of each technique follows the steps of the nursing process and contains:

  • Review of the assessment data required before performing the technique
  • As a component of the planning phase, when it is and is not appropriate to delegate each technique to unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP)
  • Implementation steps, including client teaching, observation of standard infection control precautions, and client record documentation. Rationales are indicated by italic type
  • Considerations in evaluation of the technique, focusing on steps indicated for follow-up and communication with other members of the health care team

Hallmark Features

The fifth edition builds on the successful aspects of previous editions. The strong emphasis on assisting the learner and practitioner has been maintained by including:

  • Performance objectives
  • Detailed step-by-step implementation
  • Research and supplemental references
  • Extensive use of tables, boxes, and diagrams

New Features

Age-Related Considerations
With each technique for which they are appropriate, deliberations indicated when caring for infants, children, and elders are placed in highlighted boxes.

Modifications in Ambulatory and Community Settings
Increasingly, nurses are performing techniques in home and clinic environments that require adaptation from the steps used in hospitals. This featured content outlines client teaching regarding self-care and communication with the health care team, involvement of lay caregivers, and suggestions for altering techniques as indicated by the physical environment.

Forming Clinical Judgments
The nurse is challenged to consider appropriate responses to situations that can arise in performing the techniques in each chapter. Answers to the "Consider This" items are found in the Instructor's Manual.

Terminology
A list of key terms is found at the end of each chapter.
