Covers the fundamental aspects of emergency care nursing. Presented in a logical and user-friendly manner, the book has been adapted fully so that the content is placed firmly in the UK context for education and practice.
Following a systems-based approach, Emergency Nursing Made Incredibly Easy! ensures nurses have the knowledge and skills to provide the best possible care. The book covers the basics of triage, such as the evidence-based triage process, and holistic care issues, such as cultural andpsychological support considerations.
Subsequent chapters focus on physiological systems, covering shock, trauma & musculoskeletal, cardiac, respiratory, neurological, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynaecological & childbirth, maxillofacial and ophthalmic, and general environmental emergencies. Emergency Nursing Made Incredibly Easy! is essential reading for pre-registration nursing students. It will also be of interest to post-registration A&E nurses looking to refresh their skills, and to paramedics.
