  • Editorial Reviews
    Doody’s 4 Star! Review
    “This is a colorful book that offers vivid photos that supplement easy to understand concepts. From basic assessment skills and concepts pertinent to health history, this book thoroughly covers this subject, giving examples of issues important to documentation and electronic health records. Organized by body system, the remaining chapters give a thorough overview of normal versus abnormal, as well as treatment options and nursing considerations. Included in each chapter are pertinent tips, as well as bullet points in the sections on signs/symptoms, treatment, and nursing considerations. ENT is not covered. This is a great learning tool for students and a refresher for practicing nurses.”
