Nursing Procedures and Protocols is designed to help nurses react to clinical situations appropriately with little or no guidance from colleagues. Protocols represent the framework for management of a specific disorder or clinical situation, while the procedures that compliment a specific protocol represent the numerous detailed steps for implementing that protocol. This book features over 300 major peer-reviewed protocols and nursing procedures on a wide range of clinical topics. Each procedure is described in sequential step-by-step detail. Also included are over 300 illustrations, checklists, tables, and flowcharts. Icons are used throughout the book to draw attention to the evidence base for a particular protocol, alerts for specific considerations related to the protocol, and troubleshooting tips for equipment used in the protocol.
