Description

Nursing Care of the Pediatric Trauma Patient provides the most comprehensive coverage available on nursing care of the pediatric trauma patient. Ideal for both emergency and trauma nurses, this reference discusses pediatric trauma across the continuum of care. This provides a broad perspective that enables the reader to use a systems approach that is consistent with the current health care environment. The book is organized into three sections. The first section, The Scope of Pediatric Trauma, covers issues such as epidemiology, prevention, and outcomes management. The second section, Clinical Concepts, covers issues such as mechanism of injury, pre-hospital care, initial resuscitation, rehabilitation, pain management, nutrition, family-centered care, and violence. Section Three, System Injuries, addresses specific body system issues and sequellae of trauma.
