The newly revised third edition of the bestselling orientation guide for novice ER nurses delivers important clinical updates across body systems in an easy-to-read on the move bullet-point format.
Including a new chapter on hematologic emergencies with evidence-based practice for sickle cell care management, all sections of this new edition have been thoroughly updated to supplement the ER nurse's busy day-to-day orientation process.
The only book of its kind, this quick-access guide prepares ER nurses for the most common illnesses they will encounter by alphabetically organizing diseases and disorders within each body system. All chapters, written in short paragraphs with at-a-glance bulleted information, list relevant materials, equipment, and drugs. Each possible diagnosis comes with a definition, causes, signs and symptoms, and interventions.
