Review from previous edition The book will act as an excellent base for nurses in ICU, and provide an updated review of research based practice for nurses already familiar with the discipline. The book is well referenced, and is an excellent textbook for newcomers to the ITU environment as well as experienced practitioners.
This is one of the best books I have read which describes Critical Care Nursing in the British health care system. It is written in a constructive and meaningful way, that reflects the real, and more importantly, the relevant problems and issues experienced whilst nursing the critically ill patient in intensive care... This is an excellent book written from the bedside by credible authors who are obviously experienced in intensive care nursing... practical, easyto understand and more importantly describes the real issues within the intensive care environment... This book is recommended for all nurses working in intensive care. It meets the theoretical and, more significantly, the clinical needs of staff whether experienced or not and it would be useful to allthose undertaking a post registration course in intensive care nursing.
The book is of great value to both experienced and new critical care staff in an educational situation...It succeeds in giving a broad and highly informative view on the critical care environment and stretches the experienced nurse to consider more effective and optimized care, raising the standards of care and familiarizing the reader with a holistic approach to the management of critical care patients.
This textbook is ideal for nurses who want to understand practical issues that may be experienced while caring for the critically ill at the bedside ... I felt the book was easy to read and kept me interested, and I would recommend it to my colleagues.
A well laid out and comprehensive text for those embarking on a career in critical care nursing.
The book provides a good general overview and a base knowledge of the areas covered... The test yourself sections at the end of the chapters are useful to check knowledge and understanding with answers provided. The information is evidence based with a comprehensive reference list and bibliography provided at the end of each chapter.
