Overview

Now in its Ninth Edition, this classic text and reference maintains its popular holistic approach to the complexities of critical care nursing. The book's comprehensive coverage begins with the psychosocial concepts of care and progresses through assessment and management of a variety of disorders. Now under the lead authorship of Tricia Morton, this revision of the classic Hudak text maintains the goal of promoting excellence in critical care. The second author, Dorrie Fontaine, is the Past-President of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses, and each chapter was written by a subject matter expert to ensure the most up-to-date and accurate information. Presenting theory and principles within the context of practical application helps the reader to gain competence and confidence in caring for critically ill patients and their families. As always, the patient as the center of the health care team's efforts is emphasized throughout.

A bound-in CD-ROM and companion Website include an NCLEX® alternate item format tutorial, a Spanish-English audio glossary, drug monographs, Nursing Professional Roles and Responsibilities (Flash and PDF), and Concepts in Action animations.

    good book

    The material in this book is really well written and organized. It has A&P, assessment, and the patho of diseases. The diagrams and tables make the information easier to understand.
