Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS,(University of Arkansas)
Description: This is a quick reference for emergencies using a body system organization with excellent illustrations. The material is concisely presented and written in a primary, secondary survey outline with health prevention and promotion structure integrated into the approach.
Purpose: This book is designed to provide vital emergency response information in a quick scan format. It is intended as a quick, hands-on reference for students and experienced nurses. These objectives are certainly met and the book is a necessary addition to any nurse's library.
Audience: It is written for a wide range of nursing skill levels from student to expert, which is what the author intended. The author is a credible authority and relies on a cadre of clinical experts as contributors.
Features: This book covers the more familiar medical emergencies a nurse may encounter in any acute or emergency service. The best parts of the book are the illustrations, tables, and sidebars. The tables and illustrations would be more beneficial for the practicing nurse if they were combined in the back of the book in removable cue cards or placed on a disk for download to a PDA.
Assessment: This is an excellent book, most useful for the direct care givers. It is well written and concise and covers the basic emergencies. It should be recommended for nursing students in their final semester of nursing school.
