This critical care handbook provides a wealth of practical information not previously available in a single volume. Designed as a quick reference, it is geared to the needs of nursing students and graduates, as well as registered nurses who may need a refresher or detailed information on this type of care. Maria Kruse's concise text lays special stress on accurate observation, interpretation, and recording of symptoms as well as the skills and knowledge necessary in giving prompt care in life-threatening situations. She presents an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the human nervous system, examining its parts according to location and function. Physical assessment of the neurological patient is considered in detail. The author discusses the use of the Glasgow Coma Scale, various laboratory, radiological, and neurological diagnostic studies, the causes and effects of cerebral edema, and signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure. The most commonly performed neurological diagnostic tests and relevant nursing functions are described, and glossaries of terms and of the drugs most frequently used in neurological and neurotrauma nursing are provided.
