9780071606387: Critical Care Nursing DeMYSTiFieD

A fun, streamlined way to learn the major concepts and theories of critical care nursing – and how to apply them to real-world patient situations

Whether you’re a professional nurse who wants to transition into critical care nursing or a student seeking to excel in your advanced studies, Critical Care Nursing Demystified is the book you need to quickly and easily understand the key concepts and advanced trends of this specialty.

In order to make the learning process as quick and effective as possible, each chapter contains lesson objectives, key terms, NCLEX®-style Q&A, and vignettes of nursing situations you’re likely to encounter in the workplace. You’ll also find a comprehensive final exam and coverage that includes overviews of basic anatomy and physiology of target organ systems, detailed health assessments using the body systems approach, diagnostic studies utilized to confirm an illness, common critical procedures performed, current medications used in the treatment of the critical care patient, and implementation of the nursing process to identify and solve patient concerns.

Learn how to care for patients with:

  • Critical respiratory needs
  • Critical cardiac and vascular needs
  • Critical cardiac rhythm disturbance needs
  • Neurological needs
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Critical renal needs
  • Critical hematologic needs
  • Trauma

Simple enough for students but challenging enough for professional nurses considering a switch from their current field to this specialty, Critical Care Nursing Demystified is the book you need to make your transition or entry into the field as smooth and painless as possible.
