The seventh edition of this easy to read handbook is full of drug calculations, medical abbreviations, graphs and anatomical drawings designed for nursing students. Its small compact size enables it to be used as a portable, quick reference guide of facts and figures, based on adult health care. The clinical companion has 19 sections, including terminology, medication calculations and administration, nursing assessments, infection control, documentation, tests and procedures, and the different systems and functions of the body. While the book is compiled and based on US terminology and organisations, the medical accurateness, anatomy and physiology and fundamentals of nursing care are applicable to the Australian setting. Fundamentals of Nursing: Clinical Companion is a useful quick reference guide for students and nurses to refer to in their practice or in study.
