Every entry lists equipment, details each step to perform right at the bedside, and provides rationales and cautions to ensure patient safety and positive outcomes.
Thoroughly updated, Lippincott Nursing Procedures - 7th Ed. includes new evidence-based entries on cardioversion, gait belt use, intermittent infusion device flushing and locking, isolation garb use, nasal bridal insertion and removal, pneumatic anti-shock garment application and removal, self-medication administration practice, and weaning a patient from a ventilator.
