Written in the award-winning Incredibly Easy! style, this completely updated Second Edition is the ideal reference for those entering or needing a refresher in cardiovascular nursing care. This one-of-a-kind book brings together the broad knowledge nurses need to be confident in cardiovascular care, including cardiovascular anatomy and physiology; assessment; diagnostic testing; hemodynamic monitoring; electrocardiogram performance and interpretation; medications; synchronized cardioversion; care of patients with IABP counterpulsation, ICDs, pacemakers, and VADs; and preoperative and postoperative care for patients with MIDCAB, CABG, and balloon angioplasty.

This edition has a full-color design, a new chapter on prevention and risk reduction, and expanded coverage of possible complications of each disorder. A new "Practice Makes Perfect" self-testing section is also included.
