PEARSON REVIEWS & RATIONALES: FLUIDS, ELECTROLYTES, & ACID-BASE BALANCE WITH MYNURSINGREVIEW, 3/e provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today's "need to know" nursing knowledge about fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base balance. Developed and reviewed by a large team of nurse educators, it fully reflects the current (2010) NCLEX-RN(R) Test Plan. Coverage includes: principles of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base balance, including focused assessments and how they affect entire body systems. Individual chapters focus on specific electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chloride, and phosphorus), acid-base disturbances, and replacement therapies for common fluid and electrolyte imbalances. Each chapter includes definitions, etiologies, clinical manifestations, and therapeutic management of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base problems in the context of the nursing process. A complete support package includes access to more questions and the complete eText online, and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review.
