This edition has been expanded and significantly revised to meet the changing face of emergency nursing practice. Eleven new chapters address a variety of topics, such as cultural dimensions, case management, emergency department trauma management, elder trauma, obstetric trauma, mechanisms of injury, fluids and electrolytes, domestic violence, elder abuse, substance abuse, and sexual assault. Chapter formats have been expanded so that anatomy, physiology, and patient assessment are addressed in each clinical chapter. Nursing diagnoses are highlighted at the end of each clinical chapter, and additional photos, illustrations, and tables are included throughout the text. Features: * Includes comprehensive discussion of all areas of emergency practice to comprise a thorough resource. * Provides extensive, clinically useful tables of pharmacologic agents and other reference material. * Includes over 500 illustrations to enhance the written content. * Written by contributors from a broad range of experience and clinical practice to provide clinically accurate theoretical and conceptual content as well as common sense information for patient care. New to this edition: * Presents a new organization, comprising six sections--foundations of emergency nursing, professional practice, clinical foundations of emergency nursing, major trauma emergencies, medical and surgical emergencies, and special patient situations--to provide easy access to important content. * Includes anatomy and physiology content for each clinical chapter to facilitate understanding of clinical material and reinforce concepts on which patient assessment is based. * Provides new chapters on cultural dimensions, case management, emergency department trauma management, elder trauma, obstetric trauma, mechanism of injury, fluids and electrolytes, domestic violence, elder abuse, and sexual assault to provide comprehensively and timely content on the most important issues in emergency nursing today. * Highlights priority nursing diagnoses in boxes for each clinical chapter to emphasize key components of care.
