    Medical Surgical Nursing Care 3e has an even stronger focus on the professional Practical nursing program and is a key component in the LPN/LVN series at Pearson. It has a clear and readable writing style, it provides a strong foundation for understanding common disorders that affect adults. Opening units of the book focus on concepts, issues, and foundational knowledge. The units that follow focus on common diseases and disorders organized by body system. Each unit begins with review of the system's structure and function, nursing assessment, and commonly used diagnostic tests for disorders of that system. To facilitate learning, disorder-specific content follows a consistent pattern, beginning with discussion about the disorder, its risk factors, causes, effects on the body, manifestations, and possible complications. Because nurses are integral members of the healthcare team, interdisciplinary care sections include nursing implications for medications, nutritional therapies, surgery and other treatments, including complementary therapies. Each disorder concludes with nursing care, including priorities of care, health promotion, assessment, nursing care measures, and a section addressing continuity of care to home or the community. This text provides more depth in common disease processes, their treatment, and related nursing care. Although organized by body systems for clarity, the book retains a nursing focus throughout. Rationales are provided for nursing interventions to help the student understand the "why," not just the "what."

This book is key reading for all ODP students and qualified professionals. "This book identifies strongly the enhanced development of the operating department practice (ODP) profession. It focuses well on the theory underpinning the need for the compassionate care of the patient. Compassionate care is a fundamental requirement of ODPs now, given the changes in the profession. Many years ago, the main role of the ODP was to give technical support to anaesthetists. This has completely changed and the focus is now on ensuring safe and effective perioperative patient care using enhanced and improved knowledge and skills. It is a fundamental requirement for ODPs to develop these advanced skills and knowledge in order to firmly establish the profession.This book does not focus on clinical skills, it focuses on the role of the ODP in every-day work. This involves elements such as interprofessional working, research, patient safety, psychological aspects of patient care, and legal frameworks. Most ODP text books have not emphasised the importance of these topics - whereas this book does. The value of this book is firstly to emphasise the knowledge and understanding needed by ODPS to care for patients appropriately, and secondly, to emphasise the improvements that the profession has been undergoing over the past few years.Based on the information within this book, students, practitioners, theatre managers and even surgeons and anaesthetists will be able to better understand the modern role of the ODP. Technical skills are obviously still important, but even more important is the safety and compassionate care of patients in the operating environment. This can only be achieved by a combination of knowledge and skills, working in harmony with other professionals.This book will provide a sound basis for the promotion of the ODP profession and the better understanding of all other professionals on the way that ODPs now work."
