Product description

Emergency nursing requires rapid assessment and decision-making. Often nurses are required to make sense of considerable amounts of information and act on it. The Oxford Handbook of Emergency Nursing provides an essential resource when time is short and the need for practical clinical guidance is paramount. This second edition has been fully updated to reflect new guidelines and approaches which have impacted emergency nursing in recent years. This handbook provides clear, focussed information that will aid all areas of patient assessment and management in emergency care. The concise format will enable the reader to quickly locate the information needed and provides alerts regarding critical 'must-dos' for ill adults and children. The skills section provides a quick summary of the many clinical skills needed in emergency care, ideal as an introduction for the uninitiated and as a refresher for skills performed infrequently. Additionally, this second edition has been expanded to cover nursing in major trauma and emergencies in the elderly. This handbook will empower nurses to deliver excellence in emergency care.
Written by practising nurses and subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Emergency Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion for qualified and student nurses, and to all health care professionals working in the emergency care setting.
