Edited by Jayne Mulholland, RN, CEN, CCRN, this is a collection of Frequently Asked Questions articles, written for new ICU nurses: numbered questions, followed by our own answers, written by two seriously over-experienced bedside practitioners. This has been our labor of love for the past few years. Topic material comes almost entirely “from the shop floor”, reflecting what we actually do at work. Subjects we’ve covered include: “Starting Out in the ICU”, an arrhythmia review, vents and ABGs, balloon pumping, PA lines, arterial lines, central lines… 25 areas altogether, with a strong emphasis on humor. The response has been great! We hope you’ll find them useful.
