The newly-revised third edition of Fast Facts for the Cardiac Surgery Nurse provides quick access to information and guidelines that all nurses caring for cardiac patients need to know and use daily. While providing information for all aspects of care, it strongly focuses on postoperative risk management, which is where the nurse can really make a difference and improve care. The third edition provides a special emphasis on patient safety. Ideal for new graduates and nurses who are considering a switch to cardiac care and critical care, it re-enforces the existing knowledge of these highly specialized nurses and provides structure to help develop additional skills. This `must-have' pocket reference tool contains frequently utilized information that is presented in the clear, precise, and pertinent Fast Facts format. In addition to being completely updated with the newest clinical practice information, it also includes new coverage of risk factors for stroke, thoracic aortic aneurysms, and congenital heart disease.
