Description

Clinical Handbook for Health & Physical Assessment in Nursing is a pocket sized resource that can be used by both novice students and professional nurses. For students who don't take a separate health assessment course who want to supplement their medical-surgical nursing text, the handbook is designed to be used as a health assessment primer; it guides the user through the steps of collecting health assessment data.

The focus of this text is comprehensive health assessment, which includes the collection of subjective and objective data. Collected during the client interview, subjective data encompasses both the client's health history and the focused interview. The nurse collects objective data during the physical assessment and examination.

To help readers use this handbook effectively, the following features were developed for the body system chapters

  • The Anatomy and Physiology Review includes pertinent diagrams and illustrations.

  • Special Considerations sections highlight differences in infants and children, pregnant women, and older adults.

  • Cultural Considerations boxes alert the reader to variations related to cultural differences nurses encounter while performing the assessment.

  • Gathering the Data guides the reader through the interviewing process, with specific questions.

  • Described in detail, the Physical Assessment process includes Techniques, Normal Findings, Abnormal Findings and Special Considerations.

  • The sections on Common Abnormal Findings describe and illustrate common conditions.



A sincere and deep expression of thanks is extended to the chapter contributors. Their time, effort, and expertise so willingly given for the development and writing of each chapter helped foster the project's success.
