This book applies pharmacology to nursing practice, with the overall aim of enhancing
patient care. The main focus of the book is adverse drug reactions, and the implications for
patient monitoring. Adverse drug reactions account for around 4% of UK hospital admissions.
Over 70% of these problems are avoidable (Pirmohamed et al. 2004): the monitoring
of prescribed medications has long been a cause for concern (Royal College of General
Practitioners 1985, DH 2000, Audit Commission 2001, Committee of Public Accounts 2006).
It will not have escaped the notice of anybody who happens to be living
in Europe at this time that the organisation of health care services has
been and continues to be in a seemingly permanent state of flux. In
some countries this is perhaps more noticeable than others, but no
health system is free of the challenge of change. The dynamic for this
process has been primarily, but not solely, one of controlling costs, but
the modernising of health services delivery within Europe has proved to
be not simply one of financial stringencies....
Operating theatres are frightening places, a foreign environment where highly specialized
techniques that involve opening and invading a human body take place. As
such, they present unique challenges for both those who use them, and those who
work there. For children who require surgery and their families, the surgical environment
is potentially one in which consideration must be given to the whole psychosocial
aspect of care, even more so than in any other hospital environment.
There have been many changes in veterinary medicine since the fi rst edition
of Anaesthesia for Veterinary Nurses was published in 2003. There is an
increasing number of specialist referral hospitals, and the speciality of emergency
and critical care has blossomed in the United Kingdom. However, still
central to much that is achieved in veterinary practice is the ability to sedate
and anaesthetise patients safely. The protocols and methods involved in veterinary
anaesthesia are often complex and vary considerably from patient to
Since 1997, ophthalmic nursing and ophthalmic care practices have moved
on in leaps and bounds.
There have been several reasons for this including the government targets
to bring down hospital waiting times, new approaches to patient management
with a move away from inpatient care to mainly day case management
and primary care settings. Ophthalmic nursing has been transformed by the
involvement of others in ophthalmic nursing care such as clinical support
workers, assistant practitioners and surgical care assistants.

Mental health care is an essential but often
forgotten component of health care. Nurses
are core health-care providers and they need to be
able to contribute effectively to mental health care.
In reality, however, most low and middle income
countries do not have adequate numbers of nurses,
and the education and training of nurses in these
countries provide little of the knowledge and skills
necessary for good mental health care. The result
is poor or no mental health care for those who
The skill and care of the women of the Allied military nursing services was remembered gratefully by hundreds of thousands of wounded servicemen of World War II (1939-1945). The small peacetime services increased rapidly by enrolling reservists and volunteers; the great majority of the nurses who cared for Allied casualties were 'civilians in uniform', who worked tirelessly under difficult conditions and - in tented hospitals close to the front lines - in real danger; many nurses paid for their devotion with their lives.
This chapter will initially guide the reader through both the form and function of the respiratory system; this will be aided by several exercises that the reader can undertake to consolidate new learning and provide evidence of professional development. The chapter progresses into discussing several disease processes that impact on respiratory function resulting in both acute hospital and primary care presentations and a chronically reduced ability to function.
For many of us, the tragic events of September 11, 2001,
changed everything. Those whose lives were directly touched
by the loss of a loved one, a job, or a place to live were forced
to rethink their goals and their lives. For the millions of us who
watched the events in stunned horror from the safety of our
homes that morning, the need to rethink things was gentler and
yet, for many, no less insistent. We suddenly were reminded that
there is no guarantee of tomorrow. As the shock was barely wearing
off, millions of Americans from every walk of life responded
to the events of September 11th...
The first and second editions of this book were conceived to provide distilled, up-to-date information
to nursing students and staff nurses about many conditions and diagnoses encountered in
nursing practice. With the third edition, we have responded to the ever-changing health care
environment as well as to the recommendations of our readers and editors.
We have mainly regarded elderly people’s use of information technology in their daily lives
as ICT training of elderly people. We have also discussed the possibilities and limitations
that technology raises for information, activity and for better contact with others.
The use of ICT in nursing and care of elderly people mainly implies in this connection the use
of smart-home technology in houses for old people and people with dementia. This
technology involves the use of integrated ICT components.
While the prevalence of malnutrition in the free-living elderly population is relatively low, the risk of
malnutrition increases dramatically in the institutionalized and hospitalized elderly.
The prevalence of
malnutrition is even higher in cognitively impaired elderly individuals and is associated with cognitive
Patients who are malnourished when admitted to the hospital tend to have longer hospital stays,
experience more complications, and have greater risks of morbidity and mortality than those whose
nutritional state is normal.
The programme is indebted to the five hundred plus international nurses from twentythree
different countries who have worked and studied with us over the last four years
at the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS
Trust and other hospitals. They have tested our new ideas, suggested improvements
and shown honesty, courage and a sense of humour throughout. We are particularly
grateful to the international nurses who commented on the first drafts of this book....
In addition, Kaiser CDSMP participants had 0.2 fewer
visits to the emergency room and 0.97 fewer hospital days
compared to the year prior to completing the CDSMP. As a
result, they reduced their health care costs. For example, if
the average cost per day of hospitalization were $1,000 and
the average cost of an emergency room visit were $100, the
potential savings would be $990 per participant for the first
year following completion of the program (0.97 days of
hospitalization multiplied by $1,000 plus 0.2 emergency
visits multiplied by $100).
