Book Description

9 April 2010 1405185651 978-1405185653 1
Advanced Practice in Critical Care provides experienced critical care nurses with a clear and distinct evidence base for contemporary critical care practice. Central to the book is the application of research and evidence to practice and therefore, case studies and key critical care clinical situations are used throughout to guide the reader through the patient care trajectory.     Each chapter introduces an initial patient scenario and as the chapter progresses, the patient scenario develops with the theoretical perspectives and application. In this way, it is evident how multi–organ dysfunction develops, impacting upon and influencing other body systems, demonstrating the multi–organ impact that is often experienced by the critically ill patient. In this way, consequences of critical illness such as acute renal failure, haemostatic failure and liver dysfunction are explored. Throughout the text, key research findings and critical care treatment strategies are referred to, applied and evaluated in the context of the given patient case study. Advanced assessment techniques are explained and the underlying pathophysiology is discussed in depth. Advanced Practice in Critical Care is an essential resource for experienced practitioners within critical care whom primarily care for patients requiring high dependency or intensive care.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Advanced Practice in Critical Care provides experienced critical care nurses with a clear and distinct evidence base for contemporary critical care practice. Central to the book is the application of research and evidence to practice and, therefore, case studies and key critical care clinical situations are used throughout the book. This key new book provides in–depth rationales for contemporary critical care practice in an effort to increase the depth of knowledge of nurses who care for the critically ill patient, so that they can truly evaluate their care interventions in view of underlying pathophysiology and evidence.  Each chapter introduces a patient scenario, which is developed and explored throughout the course of the chapter.   Advanced assessment techniques are explained and the underlying pathophysiology is discussed in depth. Advanced Practice in Critical Care is an essential resource for experienced practitioners within critical care whom primarily care for patients requiring high dependency or intensive care.

I found this really handy during preparation for my ITU course nursing exam. Lots of detail and depth which really helped my understanding. The Suzanne Bench book was probably more useful to me during the main cram though as it has all the latest references in it.
