Every patient knows to seek medical help when his or her aches and pains become too much to bear, but how does the healthcare provider determine what is wrong and what to do to restore the patient to good health? The answer depends on the patient’s signs and symptoms and the results from medical tests. In this book you will learn to identify these signs and symptoms, interpret the medical test results, and perform the nursing interventions that will assist in solving or alleviating the patient’s medical problem.
Medical-Surgical Nursing Demystified contains 15 chapters, each providing a description of a major body system and the diseases and disorders which can affect that system. The discussion of each disease or disorder is divided into the following sections:
• What Went Wrong?
• Hallmark Signs and Symptoms
• Interpreting Test Results
• Nursing Diagnoses
• Nursing Intervention
• Crucial Diagnostic Tests
The “What Went Wrong?” section presents a brief description of how the body is affected when the particular disease or disorder occurs. The “Prognosis” section discusses the possibilities of curing this disease and permanent damage which can occur. The remaining sections present the information as lists of symptoms, diagnoses, etc. that make it easy for you to learn and that also serve as a useful tool for later reference.
