Praise for the first edition from Doody's Medical Reviews- Score: 93 "This well-developed book provides acute care guidelines for the geriatric population in an easy-to-follow format that uses structural elements such as numbering and multilevel lists for each system. It is an excellent reference for advanced practice prepared clinicians to help identify, diagnose, and develop a treatment plan for acute health issues in older adults and geriatric patients." -Tho Nguyen, DNP, MSN, RN Newly updated, this evidence-based resource--the first of its kind--provides NPs, PAs, and other advance practice providers with the essential clinical knowledge they need to effectively practice adult-gerontology acute care. The second edition covers 10 new conditions and delivers numerous clinical updates on drugs, pain management, sedation, nutritional management, and clinical and screening guidelines. Along with relevant information on Covid-19, it examines more acid-base and neurological disorders and explains the use of Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS). New unfolding case scenarios include questions to reinforce knowledge, and step-by-step procedural videos provide clear, detailed guidance. The addition of a section on Billing provides clinicians with a working understanding of this process. In quick reference format, this system-based text describes more than 100 common conditions health providers are likely to see in their acute care practice. With contributions from NPs, PAs, and physicians, it provides expert insight into each condition, enabling readers to categorize symptoms, be alert to the distinguishing features of disease symptoms and clusters, and locate associated diagnoses. This handy text also includes perioperative considerations, discharge guidelines, treatment and disease management algorithms, and procedural guidelines. Numerous clinical updates and clinical scenarios incorporated throughout the text validate knowledge and competency. Purchase includes digital access for use on most mobile devices or computers.
