The American Journal of Nursing is to its profession what the Journal of the American Medical Association is to physicians: the standard by which all related industry publications are measured.

Readers also can receive continuing education credits through AJN publisher Lippincott Williams & Wilkins by taking and passing inserted mail-in tests related to such features. A news section addresses work-related issues such as adapting to new technologies, improving the workplace, trends, and new panel findings.

AJN also keeps a classifieds section in the back of the book to help nurses seeking to relocate. As medical science advances, nursing positions become more specialized. AJN is the best way for registered nurses nationwide to receive the latest information and instruction vital to honing their skills. --Kristopher Kaiyala

Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders - Current Clinical Neurology
Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders (Current Clinical Neurology) [Paperback]
Henry J. Kaminski (Editor)

Advances in the study and understanding of myasthenia gravis have led to the need for the publication of this important new edition. The goal of Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders, Second Edition is identical to the first -- to provide the clinician and the scientist with a common resource for understanding this complex disorder. This new edition begins with discussions of neuromuscular junction structure and function and follows with updated chapters covering a wide range of topics, such as the acetylcholine receptor, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment. Importantly, new supplemental chapters have been added; these discuss rigorous clinical assessments of patients for research trials and the epidemiology and genetics of myasthenia gravis. The discussion of the most challenging aspects of myasthenia gravis, its impact on patients’ psychological make-up, has been expanded as well. Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders, Second Edition retains the “personal approach” of the authors regarding treatment and is a valuable resource for meeting the many and varied needs of patients with myasthenia gravis.

Nursing Care Plan for Cesarean Section (C-section)

A Cesarean section (C-section) is surgery to deliver a baby. The baby is taken out through the mother's abdomen. In the United States, about one in four women have their babies this way. Most C-sections are done when unexpected problems happen during delivery. These include
  • Health problems in the mother
  • The position of the baby
  • Not enough room for the baby to go through the vagina
  • Signs of distress in the baby
C-sections are also more common among women carrying more than one baby.

The surgery is relatively safe for mother and baby. Still, it is major surgery and carries risks. It also takes longer to recover from a C-section than from vaginal birth. After healing, the incision may leave a weak spot in the wall of the uterus. This could cause problems with an attempted vaginal birth later. However, more than half of women who have a C-section can give vaginal birth later.
