I love this book ! it is so easy to understand and follow. I have had to retrieve it from the clutches of my coworkers on more than one occasion. I may have to buy one for the unit.

This book is, hand down, one of the BEST references that I have found!! I am a second year Nursing Student, pursuing my MSN, and I literally am NEVER without this!! I use it mostly for the purpose of Pathophysiology, in the classroom as well as in my clinical setting.
As, I am the kind of person, when searching for a tool/book, especially one that I will use daily, I find it essential to be able to “preview”/page through it. This is one of the last books I came to, after spending roughly 3 hours scouring the shelves at my local Barnes & Noble in search of a thorough Pathophysiology reference tool. I chose it for its large collection of Diseases/Disorders, the copious amounts of information on each, and for the formatting!
This tool offers superior maneuverability, no hunting for the information that I need. It is very descriptive and detailed, while lacking the unimportant information, which is essential when time is limited.
Thus, one I was able to page through this fantastic book, I knew it was a must have for me, It was 57 there, and I got it on Amazon for 31. After seeing how excited I was to order it, my study buddy wanted one also (sight unseen), as a result of how well I verbalized to her my entheisiasm.

So when I ordered, I ordered two, brand new. Two days later, they were waiting for me when I got Home.

This product came as described, new, and quickly which is hard to do as we are in Alaska. I appreciated their service! Would use the company in the future.

This manual presents a brief overview of numerous diseases and disorders, including causes, risk factors, assessment, laboratory tests, treatment, education, and follow-up. I find it provides handy overviews for use in the nursing/medical professions. I supplement the drug information from a separate drug book.

What I love about this book is the addition information given for Diagnosis. The Diagnosis, DRG #, Mean LOS #, is very valuable, and information I use when sharing my knowledge with other Case Managers.

This book is nicely structured and in alphabetical order to find the disease or disorder you search. Each disease or disorder has the following: a brief paragraph describing the ailment, the cause, genetic considerations, gender, ethnic/racial and life span considerations, assessment, physical examination, psycosocial aspect, diagnostics, primary nursing diagnosis, planning & implementation: preop, surgical, postop, pharmacology: with brief rationale, independent care: preop, postop, documentation guidelines, and lastly, discharge and home healthcare guidelines. All of these sections are quite brief, but nonetheless a great book with good information for use as a reference.

The title is self explanatory. This is an excellent book worth reading (especially for the inquistive health concious mind like myself). The purchase is worth the price and this is a great addition and "must have" for anyone's library.
