Portable Signs & Symptoms is a compact powerhouse of clinical information on signs, symptoms, and assessment techniques.
Nurse-experts have sorted through the mass of clinical information and focused in on what nurses need most in daily practice. This need-to-know information is presented in an easy-to-use, concise format for time-starved nurses, with bullets, lists, and hundreds of illustrations, charts, diagrams, and photographs.
A full-color assessment section offers step-by-step details on essential nursing assessment techniques. The second section presents descriptions and causes for hundreds of signs and symptoms. Banner headlines indicate life-threatening signs and symptoms, and text boxes highlight emergency interventions.
