Providing a solid foundation in sonography, Craig’s Essentials of Sonography and Patient Care, 4th Edition prepares you to succeed in the classroom and in practice. Divided into two parts, this updated text first describes the origins and evolution of diagnostic medical sonography, defines important terminology, and provides proven study techniques such as note taking, effective listening, and test-taking strategies. The second section prepares you for the clinical environment, covering topics from the sonography perspective such as taking a patient's vital signs, safety considerations, body mechanics, patient transfer, infection control, emergency procedures, and assisting patients with special needs. Additionally, survival skills throughout the text seek to build students’ problem solving skills to help them adjust both academically and in the clinical setting.
NEW! Coverage of aseptic and non-aseptic infection control techniques prepares you to work with patients in the clinical environment.
