Emergency Nursing Bible: Principles and Practices of Complaint-based Emergency Nursing
Author: Patricia Bemis
Format: Kindle Edition
Experienced and new emergency nurses: Learn how to effectively care for patients in the emergent phase of their illness or injury before being seen by a physician. Become skilled at rapid accurate physical assessments, interview techniques, monitoring, and treatment options in life-threatening situations. Know all the patient interactions required of an emergency nurse from triage to discharge.
Every effort has been made to include the material addressed on the emergency nursing certification exam (CEN).
Each chapter is a complaint and contains:
Rapid ABC Assessment
History of Present Illness
Anticipated Medical Care
Ongoing Evaluations and Interventions
Each chapter also contains a ready reference of commonly used medications, terms, concepts, pathophysiology, and worse-case scenarios for that specific complaint.
Tasks and topics are repeated as necessary to make each chapter a stand-alone, step-by-step protocol for a specific complaint.
