Paediatric Intensive Care Nursing is structured in four user-friendly sections:
- The first section looks at the general background of paediatric intensive care
- Section two employs a systems approach, with each chapter focusing on a specific disease and following the same framework. This includes treating children with cardiac conditions, acute neurological dysfunction, muscular skeletal injuries and gastrointestinal and endocrine care
- Section three looks at the essential care of managing pain relief, transportation needs and treating wounds
- The final section explores the holistic aspects of nursing - nutrition and fluid management, infection control issues, safeguarding children and spirituality and bereavement.
Written by a team of experts in the field, Paediatric Intensive Care Nursing is indispensable reading for nurses and health care professionals working with critically ill children.
