Summary
"Because ER nurses need to think fast and act fast ... Fast Facts for the ER Nurse is the only orientation guide and reference designed specifically for new ER nurses and the preceptors responsible for their orientation. The chapters provide a brief overview of equipment, treatments, and drugs used to manage common disorders and conditions frequently seen in the ER. The book includes disorder definitions, signs and symptoms, interventions, drugs, and critical thinking questions. Using a bullet-point format, each chapter is conveniently organized alphabetically by disease and disorder within each body system for quick access. The book serves as an organized, reliable, and thorough ER guide, ensuring a structured approach to orientation. The book's "Fast Facts in a Nutshell" feature provides quick summaries of important points, questions, and answers at regular intervals throughout. Other useful features include a skills checklist, coverage of common lab values and medications, and EKG rhythms. Key Topics Include: Cardiovascular Emergencies; Disaster Response Emergencies; Infectious Disease Emergencies; Mental Health Emergencies; Shock and Multisystem Trauma Emergencies; Substance Abuse and Toxicologic Emergencies. New to this Edition: Endocrine Emergencies; Environmental Emergencies; Dental Emergencies; Rapid Sequence Intubation; Triage; Acute Stroke Management Guidelines; Sexual Assault-Intimate Partner Abuse."--Publisher's description
