Book News Annotation:
High technology cannot replace the bedside assessment of the patient by the physician, argues Jarvis (a family nurse practitioner with Chestnut Health Systems). She presents the new edition of her textbook explaining health history-taking methods, physical examination skills, health promotion techniques, and clinical assessment tools. The edition adds chapters on domestic violence assessment, pain assessment, and the development of critical thinking skills. The CD- ROM contains case studies, video demonstrations, and printable patient health promotion guides. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Physical Examination and Health Assessment provides all the information necessary to conduct a holistic health assessment across the life span. The physical examination unit is organized by body system, pedagogically and clinically the most logical and efficient way to learn and perform health assessment. Each chapter has five major sections: (1) Structure and Function (A& P); (2) Subjective Data (history); (3) Objective Data (skills, expected findings, and common variations for healthy people and selected abnormal findings); (4) Abnormal Findings (illustrations of related disorders and conditions in atlas format); and (5) Application and Documentation (sample charting, clinical case studies, nursing diagnoses, and critical thinking questions tied to the Saunders video series).
Organized by body system, this title provides all the information necessary to conduct a holistic health assessment across the life span. An integration of the complete health assessment in a photo essay can be referred to at the end of the book, where each step of the process is illustrated.
