Overview This second edition of Smeltzer & Bare's Textbook of Medical Surgical Nursing is thoroughly updated. Units 1-3 have been comprehensively revised and focus on key national health priorities, core concepts and skills related to medical-surgical practice. Units that focus on adult health conditions have a systematic structure that enhances, reinforces and consolidates learning for nurses. The first chapter in each Unit reviews the normal anatomy and physiology of the body system being discussed. Subsequent chapters cover management of specific disorders, definition, aetiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, assessment and diagnostic findings, medical and nursing management. Nursing management includes a focus on education and continuing care in the community. Structured pedagogy is supported by features such as Learning Objectives, Glossaries, Clinical Reasoning exercises and Evidence Based Practice points. Gerontological considerations are integrated throughout. The text explores the complex and critical roles of the nurse as Practitioner, Educator, Patient Advocate and Researcher.
