Now with updated diagnostic and treatment methods, this book offers more complete and detailed coverage than any other trauma nursing text. Chapters provide detailed instruction on the best ways to respond during all phases of the cycle of trauma from prevention and resuscitation through critical care and rehabilitation. A team of expert contributors guides readers through specific injuries and their treatments. They identify and describe the nursing skills necessary to provide the best care for your clients. Updated content reflects new research-based findings, includes expanded content on pain management, and three new chapters on performance improvement in trauma care, injury prevention, and prehospital care.
