Biomimetics is the idea of creating new technologies abstracted from what we find in biology. Ocean Innovation: Biomimetics Beneath the Waves seeks that technological inspiration from the rich biodiversity of marine organisms. Bringing both a biological and engineering perspective to the biomimetic potential of oceanic organisms, this richly illustrated book investigates questions such as: How can we mimic the sensory systems of sea creatures like sharks, sea turtles, and lobsters to improve our ability to navigate underwater? What can we do to afford humans the opportunity to go unnoticed by marine life? How can we diffuse oxygen from water to enable deep diving without the risk of decompression sickness? Each chapter explores an area where we, as divers and technologists, can benefit from understanding how animals survive in the sea, presenting case studies that demonstrate how natural solutions can be applied to mankind's engineering challenges.

Fast Facts for Health Promotion in Nursing - Promoting Wellness in a Nutshell (Paperback): Carol A. Miller Fast Facts for Health Promotion in Nursing - Promoting Wellness in a Nutshell (Paperback)

"I would highly recommend this book to any nurse or nursing student for its practical usefulness in any practice arena. It is a desirable reference for nurses who want access to pertinent health education information and resources at their fingertips...Score: 97, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews

This addition to the Fast Facts series provides a succinct guide for nurses in adult-health clinical settings and fills the need for an easy-to-use clinical reference that delivers a quick-access reference on ways to incorporate wellness into their work, helping to improve patient outcomes, and throughout their daily lives, helping to reduce personal and professional stress and improve their overall wellness.

There currently is no clinical reference book that nurses can use for health promotion in general and health promotion for wellness in particular. Having such a reference is especially pertinent to nurses who learned about health promotion in academic nursing programs, but did not learn about health promotion in the broader context of promoting wellness.

Since Florence Nightingale, nurses have considered health promotion interventions - particularly patient education -- as an essential component of nursing care. Historically, these interventions traditionally focused on physical health concerns, such as nutrition, exercise, and fresh air, and more recently, on immunizations, and screening for disease (e.g., cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease). Because health promotion has expanded to include "wellness," nurses now address issues related to broader aspects, such as stress reduction, body-mind connectedness, and self-responsibility.

At the same time that wellness has become an important focus of care, health care providers increasingly are emphasizing cost effectiveness and use of advanced technology. As a result of these concurrent trends, nurses experience high levels of job-related stress and have less time to promote patient wellness as an integral part of their care, even though they recognize its importance. In addition, nurses increasingly recognize that job-related pressures negatively affect them personally and they are looking for ways to incorporate wellness in their work and personal experiences.

"Fast Facts for Health Promotion for Wellness (FF HP)" fills the need for an easy-to-use clinical reference that delivers a quick-access reference on ways to incorporate wellness into their work and throughout their daily lives.

This book: Helps nurses understand wellness in the context of health promotionClearly defines wellness as it applies to the practice of nursing Describes evidence-based techniques that nurses can readily incorporate into their usual care to promote wellness for their patientsProvides easy-to-use assessment tools for identifying wellness-related needs of patients Provides easy-easy-to-use tools for teaching patients about interventions to promote wellnessProvides evidence-based information about complementary and alternative practices that nurses often address in patient care situationsProvides information about reliable resources for patient teaching and additional information about topicsDiscusses ways in which nurses can achieve self wellness

Story telling is not only for children. It is a powerful way to relay a message because it evokes visual imagery in both the mind and the emotions, and this helps others to connect with the message and its content. Nursing records are nothing other than an informational story that needs to be told so that the whole medical team can obtain a similar understanding of the healthcare user and his or her health status. Record keeping is the first in a series of books aimed primarily at the registered nurse wishing to continue with his/her professional development (CPD). Each title covers one important topic, and has been written by a specialist in that field. The series follows a consistent format and covers issues such as key ethical and legal considerations, relevant legislation, case studies, and practical applications. Record keeping includes: Why do we need to keep records?; nursing records; writing incident reports; legislation; ethics and record keeping; record keeping as a communication tool.
