Summary

Updated and expanded, the 3rd Edition of this text presents clear-cut, "how-to" instructions on properly evaluating vital signs, treating patients who require special equipment or care, and much more. Well-illustrated techniques and procedures demonstrate positioning and draping the patient, patient transfer, and ambulation activities, with rationales and physiologic principles that explain why techniques are used. It emphasizes a basic approach and straightforward clinical applications related to patient care.
