The complaint-based Emergency Nursing Bible is a reference book covering the tasks performed by an emergency nurse in the emergency department from triage to discharge. The steps follow strict emergency nursing standards. Every effort has been made to include the material addressed on the emergency nursing certification exam (CEN). Each chapter is a complaint and contains: Rapid ABC Assessment Patient Identification Chief Complaint History of Present Illness Nursing Diagnosis Anticipated Medical Care Physical Examination Ongoing Evaluations and Interventions Discharge Instructions Each chapter also contains a ready reference of commonly used medications, terms, concepts, pathophysiology, and worse-case scenarios for that specific complaint. Tasks and topics are repeated as necessary to make each chapter a stand-alone, step-by-step protocol for a specific complaint.
