As a textbook for nurses, this is a competent guide to the structure, function and diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat. The authors clearly describe a number of the commoner ophthalmologic and otorhinolaryngologic disorders and especially emphasize the nursing care involved. Of special significance to nurses is the information imparted in the chapters entitled "The Nurse and Her Duties," "Office Equipment," "History Taking and Physical Examination," "Eye Nursing in the Clinic and Laboratory," "Do's and Don't's in Eye Nursing," "Emergencies in Eye Nursing," "The Audiometer and Its Use," "Hemorrhage and Its Management," "Emergencies in Ear, Nose and Throat Nursing," "Do's and Don't's in Nose and Throat Care" and "Instruments for Operations on the Nose, Throat and Ear."
