The vital information you need to quickly identify acutely ill or injured patients.
This clinical manual focuses on patient-driven chief complaints. Designed to assist in rapidly recognizing potential life-threatening or life-altering conditions, it can be used in a variety of healthcare settings.
Content covers each body system and its most common chief complaints along with first-line questions, assessments, and interventions to prompt the user. Red flag findings, easily identified by the flag icon, denote critical signs and symptoms, while a light bulb icon helps the user locate key tips.
The guide includes evidence-based practice guidelines, reference tables, and checklists for at-a-glance retrieval of information.
