With the major redeployment of staff during the Covid-19 pandemic, this authoritative textbook provides a practical resource for healthcare professionals who may be new to acute and critical care settings.

Written by nurses for nurses, the book will help readers master patient assessment, non-invasive ventilation, the use of high flow nasal oxygenation and renal care. You will learn about the challenges of resuscitation, leadership and responding to a public health emergency, and effective personal protection and hygiene practices.
