Chest Tubes and Closed Chest Drainage Systems is the first of 3 DVDs in the new Mosby's Medical-Surgical Nursing Procedures DVD series. By using video, audio, and computer graphic technologies, this DVD combines realistic patient care scenarios with dramatic, full-color animation sequences. The DVD walks viewers through the procedures necessary for providing optimal care for patients undergoing the insertion of a chest tube and a closed chest drainage system, and then using realistic, live-action footage, presents a patient's case history and follows the action through the key steps of the procedure. With an emphasis on collaborative practice, the nurse's role is accented while issues such as patient preparation, the procedure, preventing complications, and related patient care are thoroughly reviewed. Detailed and realistic 3-D animations allow the viewer to visualize what's happening inside the body and simplify difficult concepts, facilitating the application of techniques to real-world patient care. Nursing faculty as well as nurses responsible for hospital orientation and staff development will find this DVD an invaluable teaching tool and resource.
