Product description

Emergency nursing requires rapid assessment and decision-making. Often you 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 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-do's' that often apply to the ill or injured adult or child. Those new to emergency care will find this an invaluable source of clinical information that will provide guidance and structure to the patient assessment and management process. The skills section provides a quick resume of the many clinical skills needed in emergency care, ideal as an introduction for the uninitiated and as a refresher when skills are performed infrequently. This handbook will empower nurses and imbue them with the confidence to deliver excellence in emergency care. Written by clinical nurses and subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Emergency Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion for registered and student nurses, and all health care professionals working in emergency care.
