MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

A Complete “Visual Atlas” for Core Critical-Care Procedures

"As a practicing nurse for more than 30 years and currently a clinical risk manager, I can say that this book as a reference has multiple uses. Most importantly, it serves as an educational reference tool for healthcare staff at the bedside; however, it also serves as a useful reference for risk management, as we review the steps and multiple complex processes involved in caring for our most critically ill patients. This book gives clear guidance on the standard of care and is supported by up-to-date reference literature. I highly recommend it as a library 'must-have' in the critical care environment."--Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing

Procedures in Critical Care gives you practical, on-the-spot management strategies for the broad range of conditions encountered in daily critical care practice. Supporting this coverage are full-color illustrations that take you step-by-step through each procedure. You also get a DVD containing nine narrated videos that demonstrate how to complete both the simple and the complex procedures that are featured in the book.

The guide spans the entire spectrum of critical care procedures--from general monitoring through neurologic and infectious disease procedures. The procedures discussed are organized by anatomy, adding clarity and clinical relevance to the book's skill-building perspectives. The high-yield, streamlined coverage emphasizes exactly what you need: indications, process, pitfalls, consensus, and recommendations.

Within each chapter, you'll find

  • An introduction to the procedure
  • Definitions and terms
  • Detailed techniques, including indications and contraindications and preparation and complications where applicable
  • Radiographic imaging and drawings
  • Clinical pearls and common pitfalls
  • Suggested readings

All in a striking full-color presentation
