With an easy-to-read approach and unmatched learning support, Physical Examination & Health Assessment, Second Edition offers a clear, logical, and holistic approach to physical exam across the lifespan. Detailed illustrations, summary checklists, and new learning resources ensure that you learn all the skills you need to know. This gold standard in physical exam reflects what is going on in nursing today with coverage of emerging trends and new evidence-based content. It's easy to see why this text is, far and away, #1 in this market!

Reading Level: 12.0 A clear, conversational writing style makes learning easier. A two-column format distinguishes normal findings from abnormal findings, and uses color, step-by-step photos to clarify examination techniques and expected findings. Over 1,100 full-colour illustrations present anatomy and physiology, examination techniques, and abnormal findings. Developmental considerations help in caring for patients across the lifespan with age-specific assessment techniques for infants, children, adolescents, pregnant women, and older adults. Abnormal findings tables include over 300 pathology photos to help in recognizing, sorting, and describing abnormalities. New Special Considerations for Advanced Assessment sections (selected chapters) outline advanced examination techniques and considerations New Critical Findings boxes (selected chapters) identify noteworthy findings during an examination and outline associated nursing actions Promoting Health boxes enable patient teaching and health promotion while performing the health assessment. An emphasis on cultural competencies reflects today's care considerations for an increasingly diverse patient population. Documentation examples show how to record assessment findings in the patient's chart, using the SOAP format. Summary checklists provide a quick review of examination steps. A companion Evolve website helps you review key content offering case studies with critical thinking questions, printable health promotion handouts, a head-to-toe examination video, heart and lung sounds, audio chapter summaries, and more. NEW evidence-informed guidelines ensure a focus on conducting the most effective, qualitative exams. NEW Health Promotion in the Context of Health Assessment chapter explains the concepts of health promotion (including levels of prevention, social determinants of health, and the health care provider's role in health promotion efforts) NEW Substance Use and Health Assessment chapter addresses this increasingly critical aspect of holistic patient assessments. 100 new photos of step-by-step examination techniques include all-new exam panoramas for key systems. 100 new abnormal findings photos provide instant visual cues for findings that are unexpected or that require referral for follow-up care.
