A Textbook for Nursing and Healthcare Students
In Fundamentals of Critical Care, a team of clinicians and health educators deliver an accessible, timely, and evidence-based introduction to the role of nurses and healthcare practitioners in critical care. The book explores fundamental concepts in critical care and their implications for practice. Each chapter outlines essential knowledge necessary to understand key concepts and includes high quality, full-colour artwork to enhance learning and recall.
Readers are also provided with clinical scenarios, practice questions, and red and orange flags to indicate physiological and psychological alerts respectively. Covering a range of common and specialised disease processes and treatments requiring critical care, the book provides:
A thorough introduction to the critical care unit, including philosophies of care, ways of working, humanisation, and outreach
Comprehensive exploration of organisational influences, including political, local, national, and international influences
Practical discussion of legal, ethical, and professional issues, as well as evidence-based approaches to critical care
In-depth examination of nursing care assessment tools, nursing communication, cognition, pharmacology, and more
Perfect for nursing students and trainee nursing associates, Fundamentals of Critical Care: A Textbook for Nursing and Healthcare Students will also earn a place in the libraries of healthcare students in physiotherapy, paramedicine, medicine, and those returning to practice.
