"AACN's Clinical Reference for Critical-Care Nursing" is sanctioned by the the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. It provides a practical, comprehensive resource for both students and practitioners facing the challenge of caring for the critically ill. The concepts and concerns in critical care are introduced prior to discussions on physiological processes. In-depth anatomy and physiology are included, as well as pathophysiology and data-acquisition discussions that provide a framework for diagnosis and intervention. The new edition features completely updated content, including new chapters on: research process in critical care; adaptive capacity; elder responses in critical care; acquired immune deficiency syndrome; multisystem organ failure; and chemical dependency. There is expanded coverage of nursing management for all major disorders to include: nursing diagnosis; outcome standards and criteria; and nursing interventions. The text aims to present more in-depth coverage of family issues and occupational hazards, providing more exposure to those crucial aspects of nursing.
