Elsevier eBook on VitalSource
A solid understanding of pathophysiology and disease will prepare your students for Canadian nursing practice! Huether and McCance's Understanding Pathophysiology, 2nd Canadian Edition covers the basic concepts of pathophysiology and disease processes from a Canadian perspective. Clear descriptions and vibrant illustrations make it easier to understand body systems and the mechanisms of disease, and online resources bring pathophysiology concepts to life. Updated with Next Generation NCLEX® (NGN) content and the latest PN competencies, this text prepares students for success on the NGN, CPNRE®, and REx-PN™ and also in clinical practice.
- Introduction to Pathophysiology provides an entrance to the science of pathophysiology and explains why it is important.
- Lifespan coverage includes nine separate chapters on developmental alterations in pathophysiology and special sections with aging and pediatrics content.
- Canadian drug and treatment guidelines familiarize you with aspects of clinical practice you will encounter.
- Coverage of diseases includes their pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and evaluation and treatment.
- Canadian lab values provide the core fundamental information required for practice in Canada.
- Canadian morbidity statistics provide you with the Canadian context in which you will be practising.
- Algorithms and flowcharts of diseases and disorders make it easy to follow the sequential progression of disease processes.
- Health Promotion boxes emphasize evidence-based care and align with the Canadian curriculum.
- Risk Factors boxes highlight important safety considerations associated with specific diseases.
- Quick Check boxes test your understanding of important chapter concepts.
- End-of-chapter Did You Understand? summaries make it easy to review the chapter’s major concepts.
- Key Terms are set in blue, boldface type and listed at the end of each chapter
- Glossary of approximately 1,000 terms is included on the Evolve website with definitions of important terminology.
- NEW! Updated content reflects current Canadian pathophysiology literature and evidence including incidence/prevalence, cultural variations, Canadian research and statistics, Canadian guidelines and standards, and Indigenous health.
- NEW! Easy-to-read writing style helps you understand and learn complex content.
- NEW! Case studies in each of the Alterations chapters provide the opportunity to use critical reasoning and clinical judgement to "pull it all together" and demonstrate application of knowledge.
- NEW! Comorbidities boxes in selected chapters link pathophysiology to pharmacology.
- NEW! Appendix of normal laboratory values in SI units is included for quick reference.
- NEW! More than 30 new 3-D animations are included on the Evolve website, bringing difficult concepts and disease processes to life.
- NEW! Test-preparation tools help you succeed on the Next Generation NCLEX®, CPNRE®, and REx-PN™ — both in the text and on Evolve!
