Summary

Focus on Adult Health: Medical-SurgicalNursing 2E separates the wheat from the chaff by drilling down to the essential content that students need to know. This book provides the foundation of medical-surgical nursing with core content, values, and skills. Focus on Adult Health: Medical-SurgicalNursing 2E is not designed to answer every question related to internal medical and surgical care. Instead the intentional design of the book is to give depth and breadth to the essentials. Written by nurses active in clinical practice and education, these expert clinicians know what qualifies as ''need-to-know'' content. This book includes rigorously researched current references and innovative technologies in the treatment of diabetes and kidney disease with new monitors and dialysis options.  

This text focuses on teaching students adult health content with a true clinical focus and includes all of the necessary information beginning nurses need to know for safe and effective practice in a medical-surgical setting. Clear, concise language, specially designed features, and a comprehensive learning package all work together to improve and support student comprehension and application.

Key Features in 2E:
  • GUIDELINES FOR NURSING CARE provide steps and rationales for important procedures.
  • Updated! Focused Assessment boxes summarize important assessment criteria and significant findings related to a particular disorder.
  • Updated! Risk Factors provide a bulleted list of risk factors for a particular disorder, drawing attention to factors that can impair health.
  • Updated! Patient Education summarizes patient teaching, home care, and discharge planning. Health Promotion reviews important points the nurse should discuss with the patient to prevent common health problems from developing.   
  • Expanded! Gerontologic Considerations highlight information that pertains specifically to the care of older adults who comprise the fastest-growing segment of our population.  
  • Updated! Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests tables list common lab tests for particular disorders along with normal values, critical values, and nursing implications.
  • Updated! Nursing Research: Bridging the Gap to  Evidence-Based Practice  demonstrates the nursing implications of important research. 
  • Expanded! Focus on Pathophysiology highlights and describes important pathophysiologic processes.
  • Nutrition Alert highlights nutritional considerations for particular disorders.
  • Expanded! Nursing Alerts offer brief tips or highlight red-flag warnings for clinical practice.   
  • Updated! Drug Alerts highlight key nursing considerations and drug safety information.
  • New! Concept Mastery Alerts clarify difficult concepts, informed by data from Misconception Alert questions in PrepU for Focus on Adult Health: Medical-Surgical Nursing 2E.
  • Critical care information has been updated to further the authors' goal to have the most up-to-date and clinically relevant content on critical care throughout the book.
