    Critical Care Nursing Made Incredibly Easy!

    Lippincott

    This handy reference is perfect for nurses entering or needing a refresher in critical care nursing. The book presents the latest information on more 100 critical care disorders in the award-winning Incredibly Easy! style, with light-hearted humour, memory joggers, recurring icons to emphasize key points, and numerous quick-scan tables, illustrations, and flow charts.

    The Review of Adult Critical Care Nursing concluded that every critically ill patient should have skilled critical care nursing available, either to care directly for them or to advise on the care required to meet their needs. As a result, pre-registration curricula have been revised to ensure all nurses are exposed to critical care environments, and are competent in critical care skills.

    The systems-based approach matches the UK nursing curriculum, and stresses the team-based approach to critical care.
