Critical Care (Nursing)

Critical Care (Nursing)

by Prof. Lawes, Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN, Corey Hardin

Critical care involves caring for clients with life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Critical care nurses may provide care for a specific population, such as neonates, or specific body systems, such as clients experiencing severe cardiac concerns.

As critical care involves caring for those with complex medical needs in high acuity situations, a solid grasp of anatomy and physiology, as well as pharmacology, is required to ensure comprehension and application of advanced topics such as electrocardiogram and arterial blood gas interpretation.

As there is the potential to encounter critically ill and injured clients in every branch of nursing, knowledge of critical care basics is beneficial for all prospective nurses, not just those wanting to work in specific critical care environments.

Very well explained. The STEMI and NSTEMI classifications finally made sense to me. And I very much appreciate the EKG interpretation tips. It was all very practical and high-yield. The artwork was simple and very helpful too.
