The fourth edition of Medical-Surgical Care Planning is fully reviewed and revised for nursing students, educators, and practicing nurses.
This complete reference contains almost 100 comprehensive clinical care plans for adult patients in medical-surgical units. It covers common disorders, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and surgical procedures. The book covers both problems addressed with the cooperation of other members of the health care team and those that require independent nursing actions.
New to this edition are care plans for acute alcohol withdrawal, hypertensive crisis, Parkinson’s disease, sickle cell disease, transplantation, and end of life. Also new is advice focusing on what and how to delegate when caring for patients with disorders such as diabetes, heart failure, multiple sclerosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nursing Intervention Classifications (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC) are integrated.
