Description:

In a concise format, this handbook allows nurses and students to quickly find –– and understand –– information on disorders so they can effectively plan nursing care. Offering a clear but comprehensive discussion of pathophysiology, and providing rationales in the medications and laboratory sections, Diseases and Disorders will help students understand the scientific basis for the nursing care patients need. It is an excellent reference for students transitioning from classroom to clinical settings and nurses working in community and clinical settings.
