Designed to be used on the ward, in the community, and for studying and revision, it contains expert guidance, written by experienced nurses and teachers.

This new edition now includes expanded information on prevention of cardiovascular disease and heart disease in pregnancy, as well as the latest resuscitation guidelines, protocols, and clinical information.
