And you can prepare for the CRT exam more effectively with the new NBRC Exam Matrix Correlation Guide! A comprehensive approach covers all of the most important aspects of assessment, so you can assess patients effectively. Additional Questions to Ask About boxes list questions that you should ask patients (e.g., coughing, sputum, shortness of breath) or ask yourself (e.g., lung sounds you are hearing, blood pressure, respiratory rate). Learning objectives, chapter outlines, chapter overviews, and key terms lists begin each chapter, preparing you for the key topics and content you will learn. Key Point summaries and assessment questions reflect and emphasize the key information identified in the learning objectives. Answers to assessment questions help you review by including rationales and page references to the textbook, by reflecting the NBRC format, and by supporting learning objectives. Enhanced Simply Stated boxes emphasize important concepts. Additional case studies help you apply chapter content to clinical scenarios. Content from the text is related to the NBRC exam matrix for the CRT exam on a companion Evolve website, helping you better prepare for the difficult board exams. A new Neurological Assessment chapter focuses on conscious sedation. A discussion of health literacy addresses the importance of determining the patient's level of understanding when conducting a patient assessment. Discussions of the assessment of the obese patient prepare you for some of the unique challenges related to assessing obese patients (e.g., the physical exam and chest x-ray). Key Point summaries in every chapter emphasize the learning objectives and provide an easy-to-find overview. A list of abbreviations common to assessment is included on the inside of the cover for quick reference. Procedure checklists for common assessment procedures are included in a new appendix, with PDFs of the forms available on the Evolve website.
