As a nursing student I had an insatiable appetite for books and spent more of my student loan than was necessary buying loads of books…if it had to do with nursing school it was in my library. Eventually I realized that I didn’t have time to read all those books but did keep a few tried and true workhorses, one of which I am reviewing today in the First Ever SANS product review! Every couple of weeks I’ll review a product that is crucial to my nursing school and working nurse sanity…reap the benefits of my hard labor and just trust me on these!
The book “Fluid & Electrolytes” is from the Saunders Nursing Survival Guide series and it is excellent! One of the things I really like about this book (which I still use today) is how it explains the physiology of electrolytes and fluid balance. More than just a listing of lab values, this book explains why and how electrolyte imbalances affect the body. Plus…BONUS…it includes NCLEX-style questions at the end of each chapter. How cool is that?
