Summary

Interested readers will love this two-volume set because of its organization and clear presentation of patient care, with its consistent format and narrative text, boxes, tables, graphics, and photographs. With a focus on developing decision-making skills, the authors encourage readers to think critically, thoughtfully, and realistically through numerous case studies and examples. With pathophysiologies illustrated in 3-D and other exciting components, this edition has been completely updated to include diseases specific to bioterrorism, health promotion, and complementary therapies. The packaged set also includes a CD-ROM, for exciting interactive displays of key information in the books. Organized around diagnoses with interventions and rationales, topics include: medical-surgical nursing practice; nutritional-metabolic patterns; elimination patterns; activity-exercise patterns; cognitive-perceptual patterns; and sexuality-reproductive patterns. An excellent reference for surgical nurses and others in the field of medicine and nursing.
