This wire-comb-bound pocket reference (7.25x5") for students and nurses provides step-by-step guidance on every stage of the nursing assessment for adults, children, and special populations, illustrated with color photos, drawings of normal and abnormal physiological findings, and color charts. The book's three-column horizontal format shows assessment techniques and normal and abnormal findings side by side. Units on nursing data collection and analysis, integrative holistic nursing assessment, nursing assessment of body systems, and special groups are organized to correlate to the fourth edition of the author's Health Assessment in Nursing. Body system chapters contain focus questions. This seventh edition contains new photos of additional abnormal findings, and two new chapters on assessing mental status and assessing frail elderly patients. About 100 pages of reference appendices are included. The book's back cover serves as a built-in bookmark. Weber is affiliated with the Department of Nursing at Southeast Missouri State University.
