This text provides a detailed discussion of all critical care core subjects. The second edition of this text retains its balance of medical and nursing care presenting the information from both disciplines that nurses need when caring for the critically ill. The book features chapters on anatomy and physiology, assessment, diagnostic procedures, disorders, therapeutic management, and nursing diagnosis and management of each body system unit. Important nursing diagnoses for specific disorders are highlighted and sample nursing management plans for each diagnosis are provided. The book integrates research abstracts throughout to encourage the incorporation of research findings into clinical practice, and legal issues relating to critical care are presented emphasizing the information nurses need to know. There are three chapters covering the psychosocial alterations which may result in the critically ill client, together with a separate unit on the perennial problems of sleep in critical care. Nutritional issues relevant to the criticaly-ill patient are also addressed.
