Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andrea Pekofske, RN, MS (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the third edition of a comprehensive textbook and reference tool for critical care nurses. The content includes physiologic and psychological alterations of function typically seen in the critical care setting.
Purpose: The purpose is to thoroughly present critical care concepts in an organized and useful manner. Textbooks of this kind are always valuable to nursing students and practitioners. This well-organized text gives sufficient information without being extremely lengthy. The authors successfully present the material to focus on a holistic, multidisciplinary continuum of care.
Audience: The target audience for this book is critical care nurses. The book is well suited for novice and advanced practitioners. The impressive academic and clinical credentials held by the authors add to the credibility of this text since they are clearly experts in the field of critical care.
Features: The illustrations and charts presented in this text are thorough and practical. The entire text consists of black print with purple shading for the headings and illustrations. The addition of various colors to the charts and tables would improve the book's appearance. The detailed table of contents and the index provide sufficient cues to easily locate specific topics. The integration of nursing research abstracts, and legal and cultural considerations are all valuable aspects of this text. The new topics included in this third edition are beneficial to those involved in the diverse and changing critical care environment.
Assessment: I have used the second edition of this text and look forward to using this new edition as a reference tool. I would highly recommend that it be available in university bookstores and libraries. Intensive care units should also have a copy of this latest edition as part of their reference library.
