Make it easy for students to understand and master the unique challenges of critical care nursing with Critical Care Nursing: Diagnosis and Management, 8th Edition. Praised for its comprehensive coverage and clear organization, this market-leading textbook gives nursing students a solid foundation for understanding the realities and challenges of today’s critical care settings. This new edition features enhanced integration of the QSEN competencies and interprofessional collaborative practice, plus expanded coverage of leadership, post-ICU outcomes, and highly contagious infections. Revamped Case Studies, Patient Teaching boxes, Evidence-Based Practice boxes, Patient Safety Alerts, and other learning tools further develop students’ critical thinking skills and prepare them for success in high acuity, progressive, and critical care settings.

    • UNIQUE! Nursing management plans of care feature approximately 35 NANDA-I nursing diagnoses to provide a detailed, ready-to-use, clinically current reference for safe, effective patient care.
    • Consistent organization within each body-system unit provides a systematic framework for learning and for CCRN and PCCN certification preparation. It also serves as a great reference for clinical practice.
    • Pharmacologic Management tables offer quick summaries of the drugs most often used in critical care.
    • NEW! Enhanced QSEN integration makes it easier to link text content to the various QSEN competencies through the addition of QSEN-related questions in case studies, retitled features and boxes, QSEN content icons, and highlighted QSEN information throughout.
    • UNIQUE! Integration of interprofessional collaborative practice incorporates the various IPEC competencies — such as Values & Ethics for Interprofessional Practice, Roles & Responsibilities, Interprofessional Communication, and Teams & Teamwork — into the text content and case studies.
    • NEW! Enhanced focus on core content directs readers’ attention to routine adult critical care situations and minimizes the attention given to issues treated by specialized facilities.
    • NEW! Revamped case studies feature updated scenarios and information to reflect the current "flavor" of high-acuity, progressive, and critical care settings — with patients being seen in a variety of settings. These scenarios help readers "scaffold" learning and apply chapter content to true-to-life clinical situations.
    • NEW! Content on post-ICU outcomes has been added to chapters on therapeutic management and disorders to provide readers with a more holistic perspective on the critical care patient experience.
    • NEW! Expanded leadership content places a fresh focus on the emerging importance of nursing leadership to ensure optimal patient outcomes.
    • NEW! Added content on highly contagious infections has been incorporated into the chapter on sepsis to keep readers abreast of this ever-changing area of interest.
    • NEW! Links to 15 sample skills from Elsevier Clinical Skills give readers a foundation in mastering critical care skills.
    • NEW! Enhanced Patient Teaching boxes feature more specific and practical content for at-the-bedside patient care.
    • NEW! Additional animations have been added to the Evolve companion website.
    • NEW! Updated content throughout reflects changes in nursing, medical, and collaborative care of patients in high-acuity, progressive, and critical care settings.
