Review of Critical Care Nursing Case Studies and Applications
Publisher: WB Saunders
This review book for critical care uses a case study approach to help nursing students, as well as practicing nurses, exercise their abilities to evaluate and apply information rather than memorize facts. 26 case studies present pulmonary, cardiac, renal, neurological, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and multisystem problems. Following each case are 10 to 20 questions that address the complete progression of the illness, from symptoms through management. Serves as an essential supplement to any critical care or medical-surgical nursing textbook, or as a certification review tool.
