Health Assessment in Nursing
Now in its Fourth Edition, "Health Assessment in Nursing" is a colorful, user-friendly introductory level health assessment text for RN-level students. Targeted to ADN and BSN programs, this text presumes no prior knowledge of health assessment and is accompanied by a Lab Manual, a Handbook, and an Interactive CD-ROM. For this edition, the Coldspa mnemonic, which guides students through investigation of symptoms, has been revised to show specific applications to content in each chapter. A sample application of Coldspa is presented at the beginning of each chapter's Nursing History section, and accompanies each case study. The Frail Elderly chapter has been streamlined, with a stronger focus on the normal variations associated with assessment of elderly clients.
