About this title:
Oxford Handbooks in Nursing
Focused on the practical issues of nursing care and nursing procedures, and reflecting current best practice, the Oxford Handbook of Critical Care Nursing has been written by nurses, for nurses.
It is an easily accessible and evidence-based guide, providing the nurse at the bedside with the answers to day-to-day problems experienced when caring for critically ill patients, and is also a guide to some of the less commonly encountered issues.
Now including more detail on the psychological issues facing critically ill patients and further information on the intricacies of receiving and transferring critically ill patients to and from critical care environments, this handbook is a concise, practical, evidence-based guide for nursing professionals caring for critically ill patients.
- Written by experienced clinical nurses to provide the diverse knowledge and skills required by critical care healthcare professionals
- Provides a systematic approach to the assessment of the critically ill patient
- Practical and evidence-based, with a clear layout to allow quick reference for the busy nurse
- Covers all aspects of critical care delivery, the critical care environment, and systems-based care delivery
New to the 2nd Edition:
- Revised layout to reflect a more systematic approach to critical care delivery and to follow the patient pathway
- Inclusion of rationale alongside guidance enables practitioners to understand why guidance should be followed in practice
- Provides more detail on the psychological issues that affect critically ill patients
- Covers the procedure for receiving a critically ill patient into a critical care area and for transferring a patient from a critical care area
"Really clear, concise - able to quickly flick through and access the information required...Additional strength is having all the relevant information from a multitude of clinical presentations in one place. Particularly valuable to have the list of abbreviations - the book certainly delivers what it is intended for." - Gemma Wilson, Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, in The Nursing Times
Readership: All levels of nursing staff working in critical care environments.
Editors: Heather Baid, Fiona Creed, and Jessica Hargreaves
