Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary R. Perrecone, RN, MS, CCRN (Rush University College of Nursing)
Description: This book contains elaborate content on all major body systems and provides quick access to important clinical information in any critical care setting. It is intended for use in conjunction with the corresponding edition of Bucher's Critical Care Nursing (W.B. Saunders, 1999).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the practicing critical care nurse and the critical care nursing student with a portable, quick-reference handbook that can be used at the patient's bedside. It is designed to include critical care concepts related to each body system, including anatomy and physiology and physical assessment.
Audience: According to the authors, the target audience is the practicing critical care nurse and critical care nursing student. Both authors are Associate Professors in nursing with doctorates in nursing. For a pocket-sized format, this book is extremely elaborate and comprehensive. In my opinion, this book is quite intensive with over 500 pages of content. This pocket companion is almost a reiteration of the accompanying text.
Features: A special feature is that technologic devices, laboratory and diagnostic tests with normal values, and specific disease states are included. Figures, tables, and charts are adapted from the more extensive book by Bucher. Unfortunately, the ACLS algorithms cited are difficult to read due to the font size.
Assessment: Although informative, readable, and current, this pocket-sized guide is not fingertip accessible or an easy reference. I would recommend this as a study guide, but not as a quick-reference handbook to be used at the critical care patient's bedside.
