It’s organized in nine units around alterations in body systems, with a focus on evidence-based practice, collaborative management, and patient safety. The depth and scope of this textbook make it a long-lasting value that you will rely on throughout nursing school and well into clinical practice.

    • Evidence-Based Practice: Collaborative and Evidence-Based Practice: Nursing boxes offer the latest evidence-based management guidelines for both collaborative and nursing care and highlight the importance of basing practice on strong evidence.
    • Collaborative Management boxes examine the interdependence of nursing and medical practice and demonstrate the importance of teamwork in the management of critical care patients.
    • Pharmacologic Management tables in each therapeutic management chapter provide a quick summary of drug names, recommended dosages, drug actions, and special considerations for the drugs most often used in critical care.
    • Nursing Diagnoses boxes in every disorders chapter list common diagnoses in priority order for each body system, encouraging critical thinking and effective decision-making.
    • Patient Safety Alerts highlight potential safety issues related to chapter content as identified by the Joint Commission.
    • UNIQUE! Data Collection boxes in assessment chapters outline all the information required for a complete patient assessment.
    • Patient Education boxes offer quick access to the concepts that must be taught to the patient and the family before discharge from the ICU.
    • Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) boxes list the important nursing actions for a variety of nursing interventions that are part of the therapeutic management of a critically ill patient.
    • A new chapter on genetics gives you a solid understanding of this essential aspect of modern healthcare.
    • UNIQUE! Concept maps in each disorder chapter help you understand common health conditions, including acute coronary syndrome, acute renal failure, ischemic stroke, and shock.
    • Case studies address important critical care nursing topics and give you the opportunity to apply key concepts to real-world scenarios.
