This is a textbook for nurses. This book is divided into eight parts.
Part I, which is concerned with general considerations, describes the duties of the nurse in cases of disease of the eye, ear, nose and throat. It describes briefly her relation to the patient and what is expected of her in the specialist's office and in the operating room. Part II describes the anatomy, embryology and physiology of the eye, the methods of examination and the usual diseases and their treatment which the nurse will encounter. This includes a good section entitled "Do's and Don'ts in Eye Nursing" and a section on emergencies in ophthalmic nursing. The remaining six sections concern diseases of the nose, ear and throat.
The book can be recommended highly as far as its ophthalmologic applications are concerned.
