This quick-reference pocket guide succinctly explains the pathophysiology of hundreds of diseases and disorders.

Richly illustrated with color art showing disease development and progression, the book gives LPNs/LVNs a clear understanding of the why behind each disease and treatment and the most appropriate nursing care.

Disorders are covered in a consistent format—pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, complications, and treatments. Recurring icons include Red Flag (dangers and complications), Life Stages (age-related variations), Genetic Connection (areas where genes play a major role in disease development), and Teaching Focus (key patient teaching topics).
