  • A clear, logical, and streamlined approach simplifies content and helps you learn to perform the complete health assessment:
    • The conversational, easy-to-understand writing style makes learning easier.
    • A two-column format distinguishes normal findings from abnormal findings, and uses step-by-step photos to clarify examination techniques and expected findings.

    • Abnormal findings tables include more than 300 pathophysiology photos to help in recognizing, sorting, and describing abnormalities.

    • NEW content on the Electronic Health Record, charting, and narrative recording provides examples of how to document assessment findings.
    • 150 NEW normal and abnormal examination photos for the nose, mouth, throat, thorax, and pediatric assessment show findings that are unexpected or that require referral for follow-up care, with cultural diversity and developmental variations.
