by Martha Keene Elkin

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
47None488,748NoneNone
This market-leading, user-friendly textbook provides complete coverage of nearly 150 nursing skills in a streamlined, step-by-step, visual format. More than 860 full-color photos and drawings clarify key concepts, bringing important procedures and techniques to life. The nursing process framework helps put nursing skills in the context of care delivery and rationales for key steps help you understand why specific techniques are used. The nursing process provides a consistent framework that helps you understand where skills fit into the broader context of patient care. A section on standard beginning and completion protocols is printed on the inside front cover so that routine steps are not repeated throughout the text. Similar skills are covered together, to reflect the way they are commonly taught. Easy-to-follow, 2-column format lists key steps for each skill with appropriate rationales to help you understand and remember why specific techniques are used. Over 860 full-color photographs and drawings clearly show how key procedures and specific steps are performed. Nurse Alerts bring important safety issues or critical steps to your attention. A Glove logo provides a visual reminder of when to apply clean gloves. Sterile Gloving instructions are highlighted in easy-to-spot, bright blue type. Delegation Considerations provide essential guidance for delegating a skill to unlicensed assistive personnel. Special considerations include age-related, home care, and long-term care issues. Communication Tips help you prepare and support clients for procedures. An Evidence-Based Practice section in each chapter summarizes a relevant nursing research study and its findings, explaining its application to best practice. New skills cover Neurological Assessment; Application of Antiembolism Stockings and Sequential Compression Device; Obtaining Blood Pressure from Lower Extremity by Auscultation; Electronic Blood Pressure Measurement; Urine Screening for Glucose, Ketones, Proteins, Blood, and pH; and Teaching Clients Self-Injection, Breast and Testicular Self-Examinations. NCLEX® examination-style review questions for each chapter prepare you for the exam and include the new alternate-item format questions. Cross-references to Nursing Skills Online direct you to the appropriate module and lesson for skills included in the course. A View Video icon reminds you to watch more than 80 video-clips from Mosby's Nursing Skills Videos on the Evolve® website.… (more)
