Health Assessment Made Incredibly Visual! Second Edition is the reference that every nurse needs to master patient assessment. It shows how to perform techniques that most books only explain with text. Hundreds of detailed and colorful photographs, diagrams, charts, and other visual aids guide nurses through each step of performing a head-to-toe physical examination and identifying normal and abnormal findings. The visual presentation makes learning easy and fun and is a particular benefit for such concepts as patient positioning, hand placement during examination, stethoscope placement during auscultation, and more. Lighthearted logos reinforce key points. Best Picture graphically displays the best way to perform a technique. Take Note features lifelike charts showing how to document findings. Outside the Norm presents illustrations or photographs of abnormal findings. Memory Board presents visual mnemonics to help nurses remember difficult concepts. Vision Quest puzzles test readers' knowledge in an entertaining way. This thoroughly updated Second Edition has a new pregnancy chapter. A new alternative health and medicine interaction feature focuses on questions to ask and signs to observe. Other highlights include new cultural assessment information that meets the Joint Commission requirements.
