What Nurses Are Saying About This Book!
OMG!!!!  I just got the Critical Care Survival Guide. No words can describe how AWESOME IT IS!!!! It is my new Critical Care BIBLE! Just like Nicole's other books, so easy to follow and tons of tips!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! will be with me all the time! - Venessa B.

I love that this resource touches on all aspects of critical care. It's not easy to find something that discusses ECMO and Impella, but also ICP and trauma. And everything in between. Nothing is super detailed, so it's great for new nurses or students to get their feet wet. I am an educator and use it to help my new nurses review some topics on a surface level. I love it so much! - Nicole S.

If you are on the fence about purchasing this book, you should buy it! I bring this book with me to every ICU shift I work and reference it on a regular basis. It is the best resource I've ever found for quick, relevant information that is immediately at your fingertips. I can't recommend this book enough for both new and experienced ICU nurses. - James G.
