Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robyn Mudro, RN, MS (University of Illinois Hospital)
Description: This is an easy-to-use, well-organized, and up-to-date reference book for critical care clinicians. This second edition presents an overview of invasive monitoring techniques as well as physical assessment guidelines for management of adult critical care patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a pocket reference of clinically useful information on monitoring techniques currently available in adult critical care units. Because of the constant advances in monitoring technology, this is an important topic area and this book meets its overall objective.
Audience: The book is targeted for clinicians practicing in adult critical care units. Because of the ongoing advances in technology, this would be useful for clinicians at all levels of expertise, but most valuable to the novice nurse.
Features: This book presents a concise overview of various monitoring techniques utilized in critical care. The indications for use, implications of the related values and/or waveforms, potential complications, and related interventions and guidelines for troubleshooting are outlined for each monitoring parameter. There is a useful review of basic dysrhythmias and several case studies that apply the principles of critical care monitoring to clinical situations. The illustrations and appendixes are very useful.
Assessment: This is a very useful book, presenting clinical applications of current invasive and noninvasive monitoring techniques in adult critical care areas. The information presented is practical, easily applied, and up-to-date. This would be a useful resource for the bedside critical care nurse.
