Very handy reference; I always take it with me Oct. 16 2005
By Jacob & Kiki Hantla - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This extremely handy reference appears to follow the outline for Nursing Assessment presented in more detail in Jarvis' Physical Examination & Health Assessment book. You will not be able to find detailed information about every finding and its interpretation; instead, the editors very skillfully picked and chose what include and what not to include. The result is a hand book that will very quickly direct you to the very assessments and tests that can be performed for a particular system along with some basic information on expected and unexpected findings. I find myself using the resource most as a refresher, reminder, or guide to assessing a particular system that do not do all the time, or when presented with findings I don't recognize. Sample charting is provided as well, which is oftentimes very helpful. I did give it a 4 star instead of a 5 star because of the frequency with which I wish just a little bit more information were given about the expected and unexpected findings. More often than I would like I find myself moving past this book to a larger book to find those details. Nevertheless, when making a handbook that can fit in the pocket, some details must be left out, and overall this was done very skillfully to provide the nurse with a very useful and highly recommended tool.

Systems covered are:

-Mental Status

-Nutritional & Growth

-Skin, Hair, & Nails


-Head and Neck



-Chest & Lungs


-Breasts & Axillae


-Female/Male Genetalia

-Anus, Rectum, & Prostate

I am an NP student and have enjoyed this little handbook. I use it all of the time. It is very compact and full of helpful information. The only problem I had was that the binding was coming apart from so much use!
