Fast-track medical settings call for “at-your-fingertips” information. Here is an easy-to-use, quick-reference guide for nurse practitioners and other
health care providers in emergency, medical, screening, fast track, and/or primary care settings with pediatric patients. In a concise, optimally organized
format that includes current, evidence-based guidelines, the resource delivers a wealth of information for assessment and management of the most commonly
encountered problems in these settings.
Concise yet packed with crucial knowledge, The Pocket NP is arranged in a logical head-to-toe format that includes the history and physical
examination and essential medical decision-making considerations. The material is organized in a true rapid-access format, with salient information
presented for maximum efficiency and speed of retrieval. A variety of templates for dictation/documentation are provided to assist the clinician with the development of a concise and logical patient record. These templates can be mixed and matched as needed and, using a specific template for focused patient
problems (e.g., foreign body ingestion), will facilitate assessment fine tuning. Also included are frequently used illustrations for anatomical records as well as templates to assist in identification of normal and abnormal presentations. Additional helpful features include “Tips” and “Don’t Miss” boxes with
bullet points of critical information, a rapid “review of systems,” billing information, and a dedicated page for NP “Survival Information” and notes.
