HASH(0x995fae4c) out of 5 stars Very handy reference; I always take it with me Oct. 16 2005
By Jacob and Kiki Hantla - Published on Amazon.com
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

HASH(0x995fb0b4) out of 5 stars Great book! June 27 2011
By AZ NP student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a requirement for our physical assessment class and I can honestly say, it was much more valuable than the hardback-that is if you already have good physical assessment skills. If not, get both books. However, the hardback has a critical error re: phalen's and tinel's test-the publisher's made a mistake and mixed them up. Get this book, no matter where you are attending school! It's a lifesaver!

HASH(0x995fb078) out of 5 stars The "Mini Me" Sept. 19 2010
By wei chi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a course I was taking and I love that a huge mandatory textbook comes with a "mini me." The handbook pretty much takes all of the important reference info you'll need during assessment and puts it into this small-fits in your pocket- book. I found the pics and descriptions of different lesions quite helpful when practicing my assessments.

HASH(0x995fb36c) out of 5 stars Carry this one! Jan. 7 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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!
