Especially written for qualified nurses working in intensive care units, this comprehensive text has been developed to be as accessible as possible. This fourth edition has been revised throughout to ensure the evidence base is completely up to date and the content reflects contemporary best practice.

Intensive Care Nursing is structured in user-friendly sections. The chapters contain sections outlining the "fundamental knowledge" needed to understand key chapters, "implications for practice" boxes, further reading and resources overviews, "time out" sections for revision and clinical scenarios with questions included. Reviewed throughout by experienced practitioners and teachers, it covers:

patient-focused issues of bedside nursing;

the technical knowledge necessary to care safely for ICU patients;

the more common and specialised disease processes and treatments encountered;

how nurses can use their knowledge and skills to develop their own and others' practice.

Written by a practice development nurse with a strong clinical background in intensive care nursing and experience of teaching nursing, Intensive Care Nursing is essential reading for nurses and health professionals working with seriously ill patients, particularly those undertaking post-registration training in the area.

Philip Woodrow is Practice Development Nurse in Critical Care at East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust, UK.
