Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Smith, BSN (Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System)
Description: This very well laid out emergency nursing handbook has a logical flow and covers body systems in detail. This allows readers to review important systems and quickly find the diagnostic tools. This handy reference guide will be kept on the desktop, not on a bookshelf.
Purpose: This book was designed to provide emergency nurses with a concise and handy reference guide that can be used as an excellent review in down times as well as for real time treatment. As an emergency nurse manager, I think this book would provide an excellent reference for the bedside nurse as well as for administration to construct education and competency skill reviews.
Audience: "The book is designed for both new and experienced emergency nurses. This is an excellent review for a nurse new to emergency nursing as well as the experienced staff member. It would also be very beneficial for a nurse needing a comprehensive review of systems. It is factual and precise. "
Features: In covering emergency nursing, the book breaks down the unique processes and focuses on body systems. The topics are presented in understandable segments that logically guide nurses' treatment, allowing them to provide quality care and complete patient teaching. The pink boxes that pepper the chapters are filled with focused information and illustrations that enhance the content. The only shortcoming is the binding. This book will be used often and the one I have has already separated in the middle.
Assessment: I have 15 years of nursing experience and reviewing this book has brought to mind many items that I had forgotten. I have already used this information to provide focused patient teaching. This book avoids overly technical explanations that might bog readers down.
