Description - Clinical Assessment and Monitoring in Children by Diana Fergusson
Assessment and monitoring are fundamental aspects of the care of the acutely ill child especially in high dependency areas and critical care units. This practical and introductory guide provides information on assessment and monitoring techniques, including physical assessment, physiological monitoring and an appraisal of additional assessment tools to enable practitioners to develop effective skills. Clinical assessment and monitoring in children adopts a physical systems approach. Each chapter explores physical assessment and examination whilst maintaining the focus on the child and family, discusses assessment strategies and tools (starting with the least invasive and moving to the more complex) and examines how to analyse and apply the information to provide ongoing care.
