Nurses in all areas of clinical practice must be able to recognise, assess and manage changes to a patient's condition. With a strong focus on pathophysiology, the comprehensive new edition of this essential textbook retains the case study approach that made the first edition so popular with students and educators alike. Offering further reading resources and definitions of key terms to aid learning it develops nurses' key skills such as identifying and explaining the pathophysiology of sepsis; recognising and managing hypovolaemic shock; assessment and management of cardiovascular, neurological and traumatic injury; and understanding priorities in initial stroke assessment and management, including nursing care following administration of a thrombolytic drug. Written by contributors from a range of clinical and academic backgrounds, Nursing the Acutely Ill Adult is essential reading for all students within the adult branch of nursing, a comprehensive book guide to understanding the common signs and symptoms related to serious acute illness in adults.

This book will be extremely useful for undergraduate nursing students of all years, as well as practising clinicians. I will recommend it to my own students. - Kate Harrison, Head of Placement and Student Support, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, UK I have found the first edition of this text invaluable for my teaching around critical and perioperative care. The new chapters in this second edition, and the additions to current chapters, enhance the text significantly and make for even wider reader appeal. - Paul Rawling, Senior Lecturer in Operating Department Practice, Edge Hill University, UK
