Summaries
Main Description
This is a handy reference book in the award-winning Incredibly Easy! style--perfect for those entering or needing a refresher in critical care nursing. Critical care nursing is one of the most demanding and complex areas of nursing practice. The critical care nurse has to be "broadly specialized" with a fluency in a wide range of interconnected concepts, body system physiology, pathophysiology, and highly technical interventions, while processing data from multiple sources--all this in an environment where there is no room for error and seconds really do count.
