9780721675114: Clinical Wisdom and Interventions in Critical Care: A Thinking-In-action Approach

This brilliant work examines how expert critical care nurses use scientific knowledge, professional experience, and a careful attention to each patient's changing condition to provide excellent nursing care. Based on descriptive interviews and observational studies of 205 nurses, it helps readers at all levels develop the critical-thinking, reasoning, judgment, and intervention skills they need to become superior critical-care nurses.

  • specific case examples from critical care nursing practice.
  • Analyses how nurses anticipated, prevented, identified, and solved the clinical problems described in these case examples.
  • Investigates the 9 overlapping domains of nursing practice, including stabilising patients, managing crises, providing comfort, and facing death.
  • Teaches the reader to perform multiple, simultaneous interventions -- for one or more patients -- by focusing on the most relevant findings and changes in each patient's condition.
  • Illuminates the experience of adult, neonatal, and paediatric nurses working in emergency departments, general and speciality ICUs, operating rooms, post-anaesthesia care units, homes, and more.
  • Demonstrates how ethical and clinical reasoning are linked and contributes a practice based perspective to the contemporary debate on biomedical ethics.
