Core Curriculum for Critical Care Nursing
W.B. Saunders, 1998 - Medical - 936 pages
Clearly organized and logically presented, this 1998 AJN Book of the Year offers essential knowledge for critical care nursing directly from the AACN. It's the ideal study outline for critical care orientation and continuing education programs, and serves as an important resource to help prepare nurses for critical care certification. A new chapter on multisystem health problems addresses systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS), drug and alcohol intoxication, poisoning, burns, hypothermia, and multisystem trauma.
