Well-known author Jean Proehl guides readers step-by-step through nearly 200 emergency nursing procedures. This comprehensive and liberally illustrated procedure manual includes contributions from expert emergency nurses from across the country, providing a national perspective and addressing regional differences in practice. The 3rd edition retains the popular, consistent format used in the 2nd edition, and provides approximately 12 new procedures to address changes in practice. This innovative revision features a smaller, handier trim size and a greatly reduced price, making it a must-have purchase for every ER nurse. The 3rd edition is also offered electronically as an E-Library to be licensed by emergency departments nationwide. Comprehensive scope of procedures covered. Generously illustrated to visually reinforce techniques. Inclusion of age-specific considerations. Consistent format for quick reference. Focused on essential, practical information. Contributors are experienced emergency nursing clinicians from diverse geographic areas. New procedures on extubation, drug and alcohol specimen collection, preservation of evidence, sexual assault examination, automatic external defibrillation operation, emergency management of the patient with an AICD, paracentesis, TNKase, intra-abdominal pressure monitoring, diagnostic bladder ultrasound, warm water circulating blankets, and continuous arteriovenous rewarming. Smaller, portable size makes this edition handy to carry and use. Increased emphasis on research-based practice. Thoroughly updated throughout to reflect changes in practice. Reduced price is more affordable for working health care professionals. Also available as an E-Library for emergency departments.
