Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nina M. Olesinski, PhD, RN (University of Illinois Hospital)
Description: This new critical care manual provides guidelines for total care of the critical care patient with involvement of any physiologic system, and addresses problems resulting from infections, psychosocial issues, and changes in nutritional requirements. The book is one in a series of spiral bound Fact Finder manuals.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a current source of hands-on critical care nursing information when caring for patients with problems involving any and all physiologic systems.
Audience: Targeted for critical care nurses, this manual will provide nursing students and nurses with all levels of experience a comprehensive review of the management and discharge planning of the critical care patient with compromise of any body system.
Features: The content of this pocket-sized manual is presented in a clear, comprehensive, outline format with numerous illustrations to highlight important areas. The appendixes cover various modalities and special procedures used in a critical care setting.
Assessment: This critical care manual is an excellent reference for nurses and nursing students when planning all aspects of acute care management. The overall design of the book provides a quick review of guidelines for care as well as the pathophysiologic rationale for that care. The section on methods and approaches to problems which all critical care patients face alerts the nurse to potentially overlooked problems in the initial assessment in an acute care setting. The section on patient care management provides definitions, etiology, assessment, patient management, and discharge planning for patients with disorders occurring in all physiologic systems, and highlights the most important nursing diagnoses in each system.
