Oxford Handbook of Cardiac Nursing by Kate Olson (Visiting Lecturer and Health Professional, Visiting Lecturer and Health Professional, Nursing Division, School of Health Sciences, City University of London Milton Keynes Community Cardiac Group, Milton Keynes, UK)
Nurses must deliver up-to-date, clinically effective, evidence-based care across a range of settings and develop nursing services to meet changing demands. The revised and expanded Oxford Handbook of Cardiac Nursing 3rd edition is tailored to provide the essential knowledge nurses need; at their fingertips when they need it. This handbook will guide the reader systematically through the care of patients with a wide range of cardiac problems. Each chapter contains the up to date evidence-based guidelines for cardiac conditions and treatments. It now includes new topics such as stroke, genetics, computed tomography coronary angiogram. Valvular heart disease has been expanded, as well as the chapter on congenital heart disease and inherited cardiac conditions. Providing key summaries of common problems and essential issues, it will provide both an invaluable reference for cardiac nurses, as well as a precise, targeted guide for nurses from other specialties caring for patients with cardiac problems.
