while on my short vacation i happened to go into a bookstore where i was looking at a book titled pathophysiology: a 2 in 1 reference for nurses
published by mosby's, or what they now call lww. in thumbing through the book i noticed that it is organized by diseases and gives a pretty good breakdown of the cause of the disease and nursing interventions. i believe it also listed tests that would be ordered. can't remember all the information given. i did order the book from b&n online, however. it's online description says that it has 250 diseases listed in it. there was a second book called signs & symptoms: a 2 in 1 reference for nurses
as well. this one i spent more time looking at. i was reading "abdominal pain" and was quite impressed at how in depth it went in not only it's assessment, but what might be the causes of the abdominal pain. i also looked at chest pain as well.
does anyone have these two books that they could give a review or critique on them for cherokeesummer? i think both books are going to prove to be good resources. price is about $40 each so they are not all that cheap and they are about 2 inches thick so they are also big.
here are two pharmacology sites you might find helpful:
- an online "textbook" of pharmacology. site includes outlines of pharmacology information plus practice questions, flashcards and tests. answers to tests are online.
- this is an online tutorial on pharmacologyfrom the university of kansas medical center of drugs by their classification or by use in disease. this site was designed to teach students of medicine and pharmacy and has good information. most of the information is organized into several pages of tutorials where you are given drug or drug classification information and then presented with a question to answer before you can move on to the next piece of information.
