Clinical Pocket Reference for Nurses Third edition

The Clinical Pocket Reference for Nurses is an excellent resource for students and qualified practitioners

The Clinical Pocket Reference for Nurses is an excellent resource for students and qualified practitioners.

This third edition contains updated content on cardiac monitoring and neurological assessment, and includes references to the latest Resuscitation Council UK guidelines.

The text covers a wide range of essential information, including the requirements for patient assessment, the latest risk assessment tools, the Bristol stool chart, management of shock and sepsis, interpreting electrocardiograms and a guide to wound classification and healing.

The book is easy to use and nurses should be able to find the information they need quickly. The small, spiral-bound format makes it ideal to keep in a pocket or diary when at work.

An educational tool that supports learning in practice and can also be used as a quick revision aid, this book is a useful resource that nurses might buy for themselves, but it could also be used as a quick reference guide to be shared among colleagues on a ward.

Although the book does have a nursing focus, its contents would also be relevant and useful to other healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists and paramedics.
