Acute & Critical Care Nurse Practitioner: Cases in Diagnostic Reasoning
This authoritative book is designed to help nurse practitioners and students learn how to proceed from a broad differential diagnosis to a specific management plan through expert analysis of patient data. While reconstructing the course of real-life clinical cases, the authors "think out loud" and reveal how they identify pertinent positives and significant negatives to support or refute items on their differential diagnoses list, and further incorporate laboratory and diagnostic testing results to establish a medical diagnosis.
- 71 cases based on real-life clinical scenarios.
- Analysis questions and case discussions to enable learners to actively participate in inductive and deductive reasoning.
- Cases that can be used to support course work, certification review, and job training.
