Medical Surgical Nursing Care 3e has an even stronger focus on the professional Practical nursing program and is a key component in the LPN/LVN series at Pearson. It has a clear and readable writing style, it provides a strong foundation for understanding common disorders that affect adults. Opening units of the book focus on concepts, issues, and foundational knowledge. The units that follow focus on common diseases and disorders organized by body system. Each unit begins with review of the system's structure and function, nursing assessment, and commonly used diagnostic tests for disorders of that system. To facilitate learning, disorder-specific content follows a consistent pattern, beginning with discussion about the disorder, its risk factors, causes, effects on the body, manifestations, and possible complications. Because nurses are integral members of the healthcare team, interdisciplinary care sections include nursing implications for medications, nutritional therapies, surgery and other treatments, including complementary therapies. Each disorder concludes with nursing care, including priorities of care, health promotion, assessment, nursing care measures, and a section addressing continuity of care to home or the community. This text provides more depth in common disease processes, their treatment, and related nursing care. Although organized by body systems for clarity, the book retains a nursing focus throughout. Rationales are provided for nursing interventions to help the student understand the "why," not just the "what."show more
