Manual de valoración de la salud en enfermería, 9th Edition

Not rated yet
Guía paso a paso que demuestra claramente el "qué", el "porqué" y el "cómo" de cada fase del proceso de valoración de la salud por parte de profesionales de enfermería. En un formato portátil y apaisado, es un manual ideal tanto para estudiantes como para profesionales en ejercicio. Ya en su 9.ª edición, es una referencia y guía muy reconocida por su perspectiva holística y su formato a tres columnas, que conduce a los estudiantes a través de cada etapa de la valoración de la salud tanto en adultos como en poblaciones especiales.
Organizado en cuatro unidades correlacionadas, el manual proporciona todo lo necesario para realizar con confianza una variedad de procedimientos de valoración comunes.
  • La Unidad 1 contiene tres capítulos que se centran en la recopilación y el análisis de datos de enfermería (antecedentes de salud, interrogatorios, técnicas y habilidades necesarias para la exploración física, y análisis de los datos recopilados)
  • La Unidad 2, que contiene los capítulos 4 a 9, se enfoca en la valoración de la salud de un modo holístico: valoración del nivel de desarrollo, estado mental, riesgo de abuso de sustancias, estado general de salud general, signos vitales (con evaluación del dolor), reconocimiento de víctimas potenciales de violencia, estado nutricional…
  • La Unidad 3 se centra en la valoración física de la salud. Se presenta después de la Unidad 2 porque esta valoración puede verse afectada por las valoraciones anteriores (y viceversa). Cada capítulo de esta unidad contiene: descripción de la anatomía y fisiología relevantes, ilustraciones anatómicas o de procesos fisiológicos, preguntas para recopilar datos subjetivos específicos del sistema corporal que se evalúa, factores de riesgo relacionados con el contenido del capítulo, equipo necesario para el examen, preparación del paciente para cada valoración física, y procedimiento de valoración propiamente dicho en un formato a tres columnas.
Características principales:
  • Diseño compacto y a todo color fácil de absorber, con centenares y detalladas fotos clínicas e ilustraciones.
  • Ilustraciones con resultados normales y resultados anómalos para una fácil comparación.
  • Tablas de valoración a 3 columnas que muestran las técnicas de valoración, los hallazgos normales y los hallazgos anómalos los unos al lado de los otros para mejorar la comprensión y ayudar a los alumnos a enfocarse en los aspectos clave de la valoración de la salud.
  • Íconos para mostrar cuando se está hablando de poblaciones especiales: consideraciones pediátricas, geriátricas y culturales para cada sistema corporal muestran variaciones importantes en términos de la valoración de la salud.
  • Íconos de enseñanza al paciente.
  • Íconos de recomendaciones de seguridad, que ayudan a identificar consejos de seguridad y clínicos, información vital necesaria para garantizar las mejores prácticas.
  • Recuadros de hallazgos anómalos que indican al lector las variaciones importantes a tener en cuenta durante la evaluación.
  • Útiles apéndices al final de la obra con: guía de entrevistas, ejemplos sobre cómo documentar la valoración de la salud en adultos, valoración de patrones de salud funcionales de la familia, información de desarrollo, calendario de vacunación, tablas de crecimiento, diagnósticos de enfermería y listas de problemas colaborativos.
  • Recursos en ThePoint (en inglés):
    • Para estudiantes: herramientas para la valoración, animaciones, videos, sonidos pulmonares y del corazón, y roles profesionales y responsabilidades del profesional de enfermería
    • Para instructores: recursos para estudiantes, banco de imágenes y estrategias para una enseñanza efectiva.

General Information

EU Orders/Brexit Note: There will be an additional cost from UPS for orders shipped to the EU of £4.15 per carton. This will be payable by the customer in addition to any VAT and import duties. We are currently shipping all orders via standard mail and not courier service so please allow up to 21 days for EU deliveries.
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidised by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA based sales.
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity and are replenished on a regular basis.
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping cost to you. Shipping and delivery are however two different things. We ship as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
We currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. So purchase as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one low shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
All orders are actioned from the UK warehouse. The UK & Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow. If you need to chase up a book/chart/model delivery we can provide tracking for you.
