Manual of Medical-Surgical Nursing Care: Nursing Interventions and Collaborative Management by Pamela L. Swearingen

This thorough, portable, and clinically focused reference offers quick, easy access to essential information for the care of the medical-surgical patient. Content is organized by body system and provides a quick review of pathophysiology, physical assessment, diagnostic testing, collaborative management, and patient/family teaching and discharge planning data for each disorder. The presentation for each condition provides a hierarchy of data that assists in making nursing diagnoses and planning interventions specific to each patient. A consistent, easy-to-use format enhances the quick-reference feature of this book. Standard headings for each disorder include Assessment, Diagnostic Tests, Collaborative Management, Nursing Diagnoses and Interventions, and Patient-Family Teaching and Discharge Planning. The attractive and functional two-color design highlights key information for quick, easy reference. Expert contributors from various practice settings provide the most current and accurate information. Highlighted cautions throughout stress key points related to various disorders and conditions. Outcome criteria are included with timeframes, where appropriate, to facilitate the evaluation of care and to help users set more realistic goals for nursing outcomes. A variety of information resources provide additional information and patient teaching services including websites, when available. General information that is relevant to many disorders is highlighted including perioperative care, pain, cancer care, psychosocial support for patients/family/significant others, and end-of-life care. Information is summarized in tables and boxes, where appropriate, to enhance clinical usefulness. The most recent NANDA Taxonomy II nursing diagnoses are included for each disorder. Sections on Pain and End-of-Life Care are now included to highlight these important topics in patient care. The newest infection prevention and control guidelines recently issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are included in the appendix and incorporated throughout the manual. Cancer content has been consolidated to provide a quick and thorough reference. Expanded coverage of endocrine, gastrointestinal, hepatic, and musculoskeletal disorders includes new discussions of Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Hyperparathyroidism, Hypoparathyroidism, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Cholangitis, and Rotator Cuff Repair.
