Health Assessment Made Incredibly Visual! Second Edition helps nurses master patient assessment by combining images and clear, concise text to graphically demonstrate how to perform each assessment technique. Hundreds of detailed and colorful photographs, diagrams, charts, and other visual aids guide nurses through each step of performing a head-to-toe physical examination and identifying normal and abnormal findings. The visual presentation is a particular benefit for such concepts as patient positioning, hand placement during examination, stethoscope placement during auscultation, and more.
This thoroughly updated edition has a new pregnancy chapter that focuses on prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum assessment. Other highlights include cultural assessment information that meets the Joint Commission requirements.
I bought the kindle version of this book. I would definitely recommend the hardcover version. The first few chapters weren’t that helpful but I found that as the book progressed it became more useful. It was a good resource for charting purposes (ie here are 10 abnormalities for this system and their general description). The pictures (and there were a lot of them) usually helped illustrate the abnormality. There were times that I felt the book went way to in-depth on certain aspects and other times where I felt it glossed over certain concepts or procedures that I wish it would have covered. All in all, I would give it 4/5 stars. Maybe not worth the $30 I paid for it, but if you could find a used copy for 10-20 it’s worth the extra help.
Book is easy enough to follow – not as in depth as I would like it to have been and the “visual-ness” of it isn’t too great either – sometimes there are just silly cartoons on the pages that don’t have too much to do with the actual content. I bought this book as I’m starting out on a cardiac floor (RN) and for me it’s just a basic overview with just OK visual aids.
