Part of the Saunders Nursing Survival Guide series, Pathophysiology provides a fun, engaging study and review aid for this difficult subject. It uses visual cues to clearly explain topics such as a condition's at-risk population, pathogenesis, causes, modifiable and nonmodifiable risk factors, clinical manifestations, prognosis and treatment modalities, as well as the nurse's responsibilities in educating the patient. Each chapter ends with NCLEX® examination-style review questions so that students may check their understanding of key topics. This guide provides the vital information students need to succeed in the classroom and in the clinical setting.
