Vascular nursing is a growing speciality in nursing (the Society of Vascular Nurses was formed in 1993 and its membership is increasing). This growth is accounted for by: technological advances making it possible to do more for patients, and the increase in the number of elderly in the population, who often have peripheral vascular problems. As well as specialised vascular nurses, nurses in the community dealing with patients discharged earlier than previously also need the information in this book. Vascular surgery is being carried out in general surgical units and in out-patient departments, not staffed by specialist vascular nurses. This book provides a ready reference for those interested in caring for the patient suffering from peripheral vascular disease. It starts from the premise that there should be a 'seamless service' with knowledge shared among all professional caring groups in both hospital and community. The text is short and crisp in style for quick and easy reference. It contains full colour photographs of important clinical subjects.
