Summary
"Endorsed by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses and written by top clinical experts in acute care nursing, this textbook thoroughly covers all the need-to-know details on the care of adult, critically ill patients and their families. Supported by helpful tables and algorithms, the book's practical, building-block organization starts with the basics before proceeding to more complex concepts, paralleling the blueprint for the critical care nursing CCRN certification examination." "AACN Essentials of Critical Care Nursing is divided into four logical sections, which, taken as a whole, will give you complete understanding of this challenging area of nursing practice." "The Essentials---provides fundamental information that new clinicians must understand to provide safe, competent nursing care to all critically ill patients, regardless of their underlying medical diagnosis." "Pathological Conditions---cover pathologic conditions and management strategies commonly encountered in all adult critical care units." "Advanced concepts in Caring for the Critically ill Patient---presents advanced critical care concepts or pathologic conditions that are less common or more specialized than those generally found in adult critical care units." "Key Reference Information---includes reference information that you will find helpful in a clinical environment, such as normal laboratory and diagnostic values, algorithms for advanced cardiac life support, and summary tables of critical care drugs and cardiac rhythms."--BOOK JACKET
