Nurse's 5-Minute Clinical Consult: Diseases covers more than 400 diseases--from Alzheimer's disease to West Nile encephalitis--in a format that is ideal for rapid reference. Diseases and disorders are arranged alphabetically, and each disease/disorder is presented on a two-page spread with consistent headings, including pathophysiology, causes, risk factors, complications, assessment, treatment, nursing diagnoses, key outcomes, nursing interventions, monitoring, patient teaching, discharge planning, and more. Recurring icons highlight dangerous disorders, information that is critical to ensure patient safety, and age-related concerns along the lifespan continuum. Hundreds of illustrations, photos, charts, and tables complement the text.
