A Doody's Core Title!
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This book provides essential information for novice and experienced critical care nurses. Unique in its design, the first section focuses on knowledge and skills required for new nurses working in the critical care setting. Using a body systems approach, other sections provide more comprehensive information related to care of this patient population. Case studies and evidence-based practice boxes are used throughout the book.....This is a valuable addition to the library of any adult critical care nurse. Updated with the most recent information related to the care of critically ill adults, it provides detailed references, including a comprehensive pharmacological table of medications administered in the critical care setting, Advanced Cardiac Life Support algorithms, and troubleshooting guides for hemodynamic monitoring and ventilator management. It is unique in its format, building from basic to advanced content with little redundancy. Additionally, the case studies and evidence-based practice information throughout the book provide excellent opportunities for clinical application.:--Doody's Review Service
