Description

This thoroughly updated review book provides the information nurses need to achieve certification in medical-surgical nursing from the credentialing arms of the American Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses and the American Nurses Association.

The review covers all topics found on the exam, including disorders by body system, wound care, perioperative nursing, collaborative practice, nursing research, and legal issues. The book reviews signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, medical treatments, nursing assessments, and interventions for scores of problems. Review questions, posttests, and answers with rationales are included.

This edition reflects current NANDA Taxonomy II nursing diagnoses, arranged by nursing domain, and recent CDC infection prevention and control guidelines. The cardiovascular chapter has been updated to reflect the latest information on acute coronary syndrome differential care and American Heart Association guidelines for emergency cardiovascular care. Also, the appendix on oncology care issues and nursing implications has been expanded.
