Woods is considered 'the' reference book for nurses caring for patients who have or are at risk for developing cardiac disease. Known as 'the red book', this indispensable reference for cardiac and critical care nurses working with cardiac patients provides both basic and advanced content in evidence-based care. The book maintains an emphasis on health promotion, health maintenance, and disease management throughout. The five-part organization of the book consists of: 1) Anatomy and Physiology; 2) Physiologic and Pathophysiologic Responses; 3) Assessment of Heart Disease; 4) Pathophysiology of Heart Disease; 5) Health Promotion and Disease Prevention.
