Needed book for a University course. Most of it was the same from the US edition that I had from the 90s such as assessments and pictures but obviously since it is the Canadian Edition it discussed Canadain rates, etc. Very informative, easy to read and understand. Has pictures to follow with assessments. Disc included is informative and useful.

Format:Hardcover
Was very helpful in explaining step-by-step procedures, including questions to ask, and different abnormal findings/results. Could have more pictures of abnormal findings for those visual learners out there. Overall, great nursing book.
