Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Beth-Anne M. Christopher, MS, RN (Rush University College of Nursing)
Description: This reference book is a tool to help provide interdisciplinary care to critically ill adult patients. Interdisciplinary pathways for 43 critical care diagnoses address the holistic care (physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual) of the critically ill patient.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a resource to healthcare practitioners at the bedside. Established outcome criteria pathways and interventions necessary to achieve the desired outcomes are included. These pathways incorporate an interdisciplinary approach since collaboration among the entire healthcare team is essential to improving patient outcomes. The pathways are important guidelines the team can use to provide holistic care. The pathways are meant to be individualized to meet the needs of a particular patient and/or organization.
Audience: This book can be resource for all clinicians of all disciplines who practice in the critical care environment. The authors are credible and write a timely and important resource for critical care clinicians. Certainly the nurse is the target audience and students in both undergraduate and graduate programs will find this a useful reference.
Features: Forty-three pathways of the most common diagnoses adult critical care nurses will encounter are included in this reference. In each pathway there are ten areas of concern to critical care nurses and healthcare providers. These are coordination of care, diagnostics, fluid balance, nutrition, mobility, oxygenation/ventilation, comfort, skin integrity, protection and safety, and psychosocial/self-determination. In addition, ten pathways that focus on patient education are included. These are written so that they are adaptable as patient handouts. Abbreviations are listed on the inside cover and the appendix includes normal hemodynamic values. A reference list is included at the end of the pathways.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for clinicians. It provides guidelines for the care of critically ill adults using an interdisciplinary model. Although in its first edition, this book began as a result of the second edition of Clochesy's Critical Care Nursing (WB Saunders, 1996) which included 17 pathways.
