About the Author:

When I transferred to L&D after 15 years, I went looking for a little reference book like the one I had carried in ER. Not finding one, I decided to write one. It started off small, just a few notes scribbled on paper, but it GREW! I found friends and co-workers wanted copies of my little "cheat sheets." My husband, a flight paramedic, found use for it on the helicopter too. We started a class for field providers, flight nurses, paramedics and EMTs. This little project has turned into an obsession and L&D In My Pocket is the result. I hope you will find it as indispensable as I do.

This book is for those moments when indecision (or panic) strikes at your heart. Just imagine the OB saying "Nurse, start some Dopamine, hurry!" This little guide puts everything you would need to know right at your fingertips. Topics include ACLS, cardiac rhythm determination, meds, emergency procedures, lab results and Spanish translations. They are all as close as your pocket!
