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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The book has an easy–to-follow format, is informative and follows a person-centred approach to each topic. There is a big focus on evidence-based care even offering a recommended reading list and including a critical appraisal of a relevant research paper in each chapter.”  (Nursing Times.net, 18 April 2012)

“Excellent – clear, comprehensive, succinct.”   (3rd year nursing student, Canterbury Christ Church University)

 “All in all very impressed with the book, it’s coming in very handy for my exams and many of my friends have shown interest in buying it for themselves.” (3rd year nursing student, Bucks New Uni)
