    Advanced Health Assessment and Diagnostic Reasoning, Second EditionWhile many texts address the physical examination component of health assessment, none cover the diagnostic reasoning process that a health care provider must go through when assessing an actual case. For this reason, we've published a new edition of Advanced Health Assessment and Diagnostic Reasoning, Second Edition by Jacqueline Rhoads and Sandra Wiggins Petersen. By including each step of health assessment, the text demonstrates the links between health history and physical examination to help the healthcare provider formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan.

    Key Features & Benefits

    • “Differential Diagnosis of Common Disorders” tables summarize significant findings in the history and physical exam and gives pertinent diagnostic tests for common disorders
    • “Assessment of Special Populations" sections highlight important information on assessing pregnant, neonatal, pediatric, and geriatric patients
    • Case studies recount a patient’s history and provide sample documentation of the history and physical examination
