Taking a structured approach that maps to the ‘ABCDE’ method of patient assessment, the book provides a one-stop-shop for nursing students that shows how to plan care for the acutely ill adult. The use of case studies and activities bring the book to life with clear and simple explanations of the relevant anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology helping to build a deeper understanding of acute illness and disrupted homeostasis.
