Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Catherine Ferrario, MS, RN, CS, FNP (Rush University College of Nursing)
Description: Emergency nurses need a quick, easy-to-read reference that provides emergency care information on every specialty from pediatrics to gerontology.
Purpose: This fifth edition is designed to be a rapid reference manual for use in emergency departments.
Audience: It is an exceptional tool for novice and expert emergency nurses along with flight nurses and nurses with practice sites in ambulatory care settings interested in increasing their knowledge of emergency care.
Features: It covers a variety of medical, trauma, and pediatric topics. Each topic has a detailed description of prominent signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, and therapeutic interventions arranged in list format facilitating rapid reference. The revised sexual assault chapter provides increased detail about sexual assault, evidence collection procedures, and documentation recommendations. Four new chapters concisely discuss patient and family education; shock and hemodynamic monitoring; allergies and hypersensitivity; and forensic nursing. The chapter on hemodynamic monitoring clearly describes patient preparation, as well as waveform analysis of arterial pressure and pulmonary artery pressure monitoring. Some 35 contributors with emergency nursing expertise are chapter authors. This manual has many table illustrations that contain a large amount of clinical information. Helpful Web sites are located on the covers for quick reference.
Assessment: With the rapid advances in emergency medicine and emergency nursing information, this manual provides a rapid reference that can be used in emergency care clinical sites as compared to Sheehy's Emergency Nursing: Principles and Practice (Mosby-Year Book, 1998), by the same author, which functions as a textbook and addresses in greater depth the physiological and professional aspects of emergency nursing.
