This pocket-sized reference for new and seasoned intensive care unit (ICU) nurses contains critical knowledge presented in the clear, precise, """"Fact Facts"""" format. It provides quick access to a broad array of guidelines, procedures, and equipment used by ICU nurses daily as well as on a less frequent basis. The book covers assessment and procedural skills, medications, intravenous (IV) therapy, nutrition, wound care, sterile field setup, and patient preparation. It facilitates equipment mastery for respiratory and cardiac care along with troubleshooting tips for monitoring and mechanical devices. Also included is information on specific types of critical care units, such as cardiac, surgical, neuro, and the burn unit. Documentation, advance directives, organ donations, palliative and end-of-life care are also discussed. The resource addresses the requirements of The Joint Commission and recommendations of the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, such as isolation precautions and use of personal protective equipment. Other important information is provided such as normal hemodynamic measurements, basic electrocardiographic (EKG) rhythms, 12-lead EKG electrode placement, and a """"Do Not Use"""" abbreviation list in the appendix that will help prevent medication errors. NOTE: This title is not for sale in the UK
