This essential textbook comprehensively prepares intensive care nurses in the varied clinical roles and responsibilities unique to this specialist field. Using the Mead Model for nursing as a specifically developed framework for care, Nursing the Critically Ill provides invaluable information on how to holistically meet the needs of such a vulnerable client group. Using a patient centred approach, the text covers both physical and non-physical needs with a systematic exploration of the respiratory, cardiovascular and neurological needs of critically ill individuals, with equal attention given to pain and sedation, nutrition, elimination, and mobility.The concluding chapters provide a thorough grounding in ethical and professional issues relating to critical care nursing. Edited by Cheryl Viney, with contributions from ten practising critical care nurses and nurse educators, this research-based highly illustrated book will prove invaluable to all nurses caring for critically ill people, or who are studying courses on critical care nursing.
