This uniquely practical handbook of flowcharts and succinct clinical information is a time-saving aid to the quick and accurate assessment of 200 common signs and symptoms.

On the left-hand page is concise, bulleted information about possible diagnoses, treatment, and patient counseling. On the right-hand page is a flowchart that leads the nurse through the assessment process, focusing on key findings and diagnostic tests and narrowing diagnostic possibilities. Icons point out special findings, tests, and follow-up for children and older adults.
