- DescriptionThis new edition of Woodrow's Intensive Care Nursing will be warmly welcomed. Especially written for qualified nurses working in intensive care nursing units, this comprehensive text has been developed to be as accessible as possible. Including new chapters on planning for pandemics and transferring patients, it has been revised throughout to ensure the evidence-base is completely up-to-date and the content reflects contemporary best practice. Intensive Care Nursing is structured in user-friendly sections. Each chapter contains 'fundamental kwledge' needed to understand the chapter, an introduction, 'implications for practice', a chapter summary, completely updated further reading, 'time out' sections for revision and a clinical scenario with questions included. Reviewed throughout by experienced practitioners and teachers, it covers: * patient-focused issues of bedside nursing * the technical kwledge necessary to care safely for ICU patients * the more common and specialized disease processes and treatments encountered * how nurses can use their kwledge and skills to develop their own and others' practice.
