Overview

A Complete “Visual Atlas” for Core Critical-Care Procedures

"As a practicing nurse for more than 30 years and currently a clinical risk manager, I can say that this book as a reference has multiple uses. Most importantly, it serves as an educational reference tool for healthcare staff at the bedside; however, it also serves as a useful reference for risk management, as we review the steps and multiple complex processes involved in caring for our most critically ill patients. This book gives clear guidance on the standard of care and is supported by up-to-date reference literature. I highly recommend it as a library 'must-have' in the critical care environment."—Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing

Procedures in Critical Care gives you practical, on-the-spot management strategies for the broad range of conditions encountered in daily critical care practice. Supporting this coverage are full-color illustrations that take you step-by-step through each procedure. You also get a DVD containing nine narrated videos that demonstrate how to complete both the simple and the complex procedures that are featured in the book.

The guide spans the entire spectrum of critical care procedures—from general monitoring through neurologic and infectious disease procedures. The procedures discussed are organized by anatomy, adding clarity and clinical relevance to the book's skill-building perspectives. The high-yield, streamlined coverage emphasizes exactly what you need: indications, process, pitfalls, consensus, and recommendations.

Within each chapter, you'll find

  • An introduction to the procedure
  • Definitions and terms
  • Detailed techniques, including indications and contraindications and preparation and complications where applicable
  • Radiographic imaging and drawings
  • Clinical pearls and common pitfalls
  • Suggested readings

All in a striking full-color presentation

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This monograph introduces novices to the activities and environment of the intensive care unit. A DVD included with the book has videos demonstrating common procedures.
Purpose: A visual introduction to the intensive care unit environment is provided.
Audience: Students, junior residents, nurses, and therapists encountering the intensive care unit are an appropriate audience for this work created by a senior practitioner at the University of Pennsylvania.
Features: After an introduction to the basics of the intensive care unit environment, procedures associated with support of individual organ systems are reviewed. For example, neurological procedures include brain death examination and intracranial pressure monitoring. Thoracic procedures include percutaneous airways, mechanical ventilation and bronchoscopy. Cardiovascular procedures include monitoring technologies. Smaller chapter groups cover gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and extremity considerations. The brief chapters make extensive use of color illustrations and occasionally include sample documents. Many of the photographs appear to originate from the intensive care units of the University of Pennsylvania. A typical chapter is three pages in length and includes one to two references based on original work, many from nursing standards. The table of contents groups chapters by organ system while the subject index of seven pages provides adequate access to content. The DVD describes clinical procedures including arterial and venous catheterization, pulmonary artery catheter placement, and tube thoracostomy. The video reproduction is of adequate quality and the narration is concise.
Assessment: This is a nicely illustrated introduction to the ICU environment, but there is insufficient detail to provide anything other than a brief introduction. Videos on the accompanying DVD complement but do not replicate material in the book.
