Overview

Critical Care Nursing: Learning from Practice takes a unique approach to critical care. Based around case scenarios that have the patient as the central focus, each chapter is constructed around an example of a critically ill patient with specific care needs. The chapters then go on to critically explore the knowledge and skills required to deliver expert care. This book looks at a range of critical care scenarios, including:

  • The patient with acute lung injury
  • The patient with fever
  • The patient with an acute kidney injury
  • The patient with long term needs
  • The patient with increased intra-abdominal pressure
  • The Patient following cardiac surgery

    Each chapter develops knowledge of the related physiology/pathophysiology, appropriate nursing interventions that are research/evidence based, technical skills, data interpretation and critical appraisal skills, enabling the reader to apply fundamental knowledge to more complex patient problems.  Critical Care Nursing: Learning from Practice is an essential resource for practitioners faced with complex and challenging patient cases.
