about this item

Nurses in all areas of clinical practice must be able to recognise, assess and manage changes to a patient's condition. Recent years have seen a number of investigations reporting serious concerns about the standard of care being received in hospital settings and, as a consequence, the knowledge and skills of nurses in acute patient care has come under ever-increasing scrutiny.With a strong focus on pathophysiology, this comprehensive new edition of Nursing the Acutely Ill Adult retains the case study approach that made the first edition so popular with students and educators alike. Offering further reading resources and definitions of key terms to aid learning, and including two brand-new chapters, this second edition will develop nurses' key skills in:• Identifying and explaining the pathophysiology of sepsis, as well as the importance of monitoring for indicators of patient deterioration in sepsis• Recognising and managing hypovolaemic shock• Assessment and management of cardiovascular, neurological and traumatic injury• Understanding priorities in initial stroke assessment and management, including nursing care following administration of a thrombolytic drug • Possible interventions for problems related to diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and renal diseaseWritten by contributors from a range of clinical and academic backgrounds, this second edition of Nursing the Acutely Ill Adult is essential reading for all students within the adult branch of nursing.
