Written by emergency nurses for emergency nurses, this comprehensive, evidence-based resource covers the issues and procedures that are often unique to the emergency department. New developments and changes in clinical practice are incorporated throughout. The user-friendly format features more than 350 high-quality illustrations and 150 tables that highlight essential concepts and offer quick access to vital information. Key coverage includes clinical fundamentals, treatment for trauma and medical-surgical emergencies, the foundations of emergency nursing practice, and special populations.
    • 58 contributors offer valuable insights from a broad range of clinical positions in rural, suburban, and urban areas.
    • High-quality radiographs and other diagnostic images help you learn to identify common conditions — especially head trauma, fractures, and dislocations.
    • Logically organized, chapters are grouped into six sections for quick access to important content: Foundations of Emergency Nursing, Professional Practice, Clinical Foundations of Emergency Nursing, Major Trauma Emergencies, Medical and Surgical Emergencies, and Special Patient Populations.
    • Tables and boxes highlight and summarize critical information for at-a-glance reference.
    • A separate unit on special patient populations covers topics such as child abuse, elder abuse, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, substance abuse and behavioral/pediatric/obstetrical emergencies.
    • Priority nursing diagnoses are highlighted in a quick-reference appendix to help you focus on the most serious problems.
    • Five new chapters bring you the most reliable, up-to-date information on these key topics:
      • Management of the Critical Care Patient in the Emergency Department
      • Family Presence During Resuscitation
      • Forensic Nursing
      • Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Agents of Mass Destruction
      • Influenza: Seasonal, Avian, and Pandemic
    • Expanded coverage of shock and sepsis provides essential information on pathophysiology and diagnosis, with valuable guidelines for managing these patients.
    • A detailed discussion of various types of triage systems and triage acuity ratings examines valid and reliable methods for differentiating between patients who require immediate treatment and those who can wait.
    • Additional coverage of behavioral health emergencies includes new information on agitation, substance abuse, and suicide prevention.
