Overview

Critical Care Nursing: Science and Practice by Sheila Adam

The third edition of the best-selling Critical Care Nursing offers readers a fully up-to-date, evidence-based guide to the science and practice of nursing the critically ill patient.

Organised into 16 chapters, this edition covers all essential aspects of critical care nursing, from how to manage and monitor specific problems within organ systems, to how to provide sympathetic and compassionate care. A new chapter on 'Managing major incidents and preparing for pandemics' has been introduced with an insight to this crucial aspect of contemporary global healthcare.

Written by a team of experienced nurses, this textbook supports staff working across the continuum of critical care to deliver safe, knowledgeable care that is rooted in a strong clinical, evidence base.
