Key Features:

• New content on post-ICU outcomes has been added to chapters on therapeutic management and disorders to provide you with a more holistic perspective on the critical care patient experience.
• New enhanced Patient Teaching boxes feature more specific and practical content for at-the-bedside 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.
