Acute Care for Nurses

A practical handbook to boost your confidence with assessment techniques and key clinical skills when administering effective acute care

This helpful revision tool was developed to assist healthcare workers in the field of acute care, at a time when healthcare professionals have been under more pressure than ever before. In Acute Care for Nurses, readers will find:
* A revision of medicines management formulas, plus advanced formulas seen in a clinical setting, with chapters on sepsis and conflict resolution
* Assessment techniques and the individual components of the ABCDE assessment, covering vital signs, clinical observation at superficial and more in-depth levels, and clinical actions
* Higher skills, such as caring for the ventilated patient and fluid resuscitation in adults and children, and subcutaneous fluid hydration
* Critical care simulation and need-to-know medical abbreviations, plus three helpful appendices containing tool kits and charts

Acute Care for Nurses is a must-have resource for nursing students, including nursing associates, registered nurses and midwives, assistant practitioners and senior healthcare assistants, return to practice nurses, overseas nurses and anyone else requiring acute clinical skills and assessment techniques.
