The fourth edition of this nurses dictionary provides comprehensive coverage of the ever-expanding vocabulary of the nursing professions, explaining all the terms and concepts likely to be encountered by nurses, therapists, radiographers and those in similar professions, during the course of their work. In addition to specifically nursing terms, there are many entries in the field of medicine, surgery, anatomy, physiology, psychiatry, physiotherapy and pharmacology (including the trade names of commonly used drugs). This new edition has been extensively revised and updated, incorporating new material on the major developments of the last few years: these include accident and emergency; trauma; public health medicine; and the theory and practice of nursing. Developments in the medical field include genetics; organ transplantation; research into obesity, cancer, and the links between BSE and Creutzfeld-Jacob disease; infections, food poisoning and resistance to antibiotics; and new diseases such as Gulf War Syndrome.
