What Reviewers Are Saying
This would be a helpful guide for nurses working in any acute setting; acute wards, coronary care, critical care outreach or the emergency department. It is also a good introductory tool for critical care nurses explaining the principles of assessment, different types of invasive monitoring and waveforms and so on. (Nursing Times, 17 October 2012)
