Abstract

The Oxford Handbook of Emergency Nursing is a comprehensive text for nursing and allied health professionals who are providing emergency and urgent care in a variety of settings. It is a quick reference text that can be consulted easily, whilst providing care for the whole range of adult and child presentations. Each chapter covers a distinct physiological system and its associated emergency presentations. Other chapters cover specific issues in the emergency care of patients, e.g. major trauma. A detailed skills chapter provides an overview of the many clinical skills required when caring for patients with acute illness or injuries.
