Summary: This information-packed, easy-to-use pocket guide serves both as a reference for nurses working in clinical settings and as a student text for programs that offer condensed coverage of health assessment in lieu of a more comprehensive, more expensive book. Organized by body systems, the focus of this updated edition remains on assessing, documenting, and reporting the current status and changes in the condition of patients for all age groups.

  • More pediatric coverage on breast development for children, abuse, and asthma.
  • More geriatric coverage on assessing edema, circulation and skin problems, nutritional needs, medications, and vitamins.
