Description

Still the definitive disease reference for nurses, Diseases, Fourth Edition covers everything nurses need to know about more than 500 diseases - from causes and assessment through treatment, nursing interventions, and patient outcomes. Entries include the steps of the nursing process and nursing care in various settings - acute and subacute care facilities, school and community clinics, and the home.

This edition covers emerging infections such as monkeypox and listeriosis and includes both full entries and a quick-consult appendix on biologic weapons. A new icon highlights gender differences in disease presentation and resolution. A 16-page full-color insert illustrates the pathophysiology of major disorders.
