Fluids, electrolytes, & acid-base balance with nursing reviews & rationales
Part of the Pearson reviews & rationales series
For nursing courses covering fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base balance, or those preparing nursing students for these components of the NCLEX-RN (R) examination. Pearson Reviews & Rationales: Fluids, Electrolytes & Acid-Base Balance with Nursing Reviews & Rationales, 4th Edition provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today's "need to know" nursing knowledge about fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base balance.
Developed and reviewed by a large team of nurse educators, it fully reflects the NCLEX-RN (R) Test Plan.
Coverage includes principles of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base balance, such as focused assessments and how they affect entire body systems.
Individual chapters focus on specific electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chloride, and phosphorus), acid-base disturbances, and replacement therapies for common fluid and electrolyte imbalances.
Each chapter includes definitions, etiologies, clinical manifestations, and therapeutic management of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base problems in the context of the nursing process.
A complete support package includes access to more questions and the complete eText online, and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review.
