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.

Exploring a range of critical care scenarios, including respiratory failure, neurological/sensory problems, the patient with inflammation/infection, haemodynamics, renal failure, gastrointestinal problems, Critical Care Nursing will enable the reader to apply fundamental knowledge to more complex patient problems. 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.

Critical Care Nursing: Learning from Practice is an essential resource for practitioners faced with complex and challenging patient cases.
