Lewis’s Medical Surgical Nursing has been designed as per the curriculum of South Asian nations. The original book has been updated and modified in order to include information that is required in nursing schools of the subcontinent. Information about diseases that occur in India and the surrounding countries have been added to Lewis’s Medical Surgical Nursing. For the benefit of students, nearly 1500 coloured photographs of live surgeries, and illustrations have been incorporated into the pages on this text. This helps readers get a visual idea of what it is like to work in operating theatres along with surgeons, in real life. The book has been divided into twelve chapters, which are further divided into two sections. The section of Assessment describes the anatomy of the body, physiological systems, and health history. The second section is titled Management, and it covers topics such as clinical manifestations, management of disease and disorders, pathophysiology, and collaborative cures. Some chapters are Physiologic Mechanisms of Disease, Problems of Oxygenation: Perfusion, Problems Related to Regulatory and Reproductive Mechanisms, and Nursing Care in Specialized Settings.
