An essential guide to critical care nursing that includes all the key scientific knowledge and procedures you will need to know when entering the critical care environment.

It also features coverage of psychological care and infection prevention, and includes a consistent focus on the importance of a person centred, evidence-based approach to critical care delivery.

To further support your learning, the book is full of activities that enhance your knowledge and test your understanding, including clinical case studies, critical thinking tasks, and reflective practice exercises.
