Trauma Junkie: Memoirs of an Emergency Flight Nurse


By (author): Janice Hudson

“Trauma Junkie gives us a view over the flight nurse’s shoulder from liftoff until the patient is delivered to the hospital and the agonizing minutes in between. These fascinating true stories are impossible to put down.” — James M. Betts, MD, Chief of Department of Surgery and Director of Trauma Services, Children’s Hospital, Oakland

“An exciting portrayal of emergency nursing.” — Library Journal

“Fast-paced nonfiction that reads like an adventure story.” — School Library Journal

In Trauma Junkie, readers accompany veteran flight nurse Janice Hudson as she races in response to emergency calls in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her workplace is a cramped California Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR) helicopter in which medical personnel try to fix the human carnage wrought by shootings, accidents and natural disasters.

In this new and expanded edition, Hudson updates readers on how she and her colleagues have fared since moving on to different medical roles — including her own battle with multiple sclerosis, which ultimately forced her to give up the job she loved.

The new Trauma Junkie also contains several previously unpublished stories, including a new addition to the lineup of “stupid human tricks” Hudson witnessed and an all-new chapter describing a call involving the most heartbreaking of patients: a child who didn’t make it.

Hudson is a natural storyteller who conveys the excitement of her days with calstar — heroic rescues, tragic deaths and the hilarious incidents that made the tension bearable — and the deep commitment of her team to keep patients alive in the most perilous situations.

Patient Safety: A Case-Based Comprehensive Guide


Despite the evolution and growing awareness of patient safety, many medical professionals are not a part of this important conversation.  Clinicians often believe they are too busy taking care of patients to adopt and implement patient safety initiatives and that acknowledging medical errors is an affront to their skills.

Patient Safety provides clinicians with a better understanding of the prevalence, causes and solutions for medical errors; bringing best practice principles to the bedside.  Written by experts from a variety of backgrounds, each chapter features an analysis of clinical cases based on the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) methodology, along with case-based discussions on various patient safety topics.  The systems and processes outlined in the book are general and broadly applicable to institutions of all sizes and structures.

The core ethic of medical professionals is to “do no harm”.  Patient Safety is a comprehensive resource for physicians, nurses and students, as well as healthcare leaders and administrators for identifying, solving and preventing medical error.

Nursing Diagnoses 2012-14: Definitions and Classification


By (author): NANDA International

A nursing diagnosis is defined as a clinical judgment about individual, family or community responses to actual or potential health problems or life processes which provide the basis for selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which the nurse has accountability (NANDA-I, 2009). Accurate and valid nursing diagnoses guide the selection of interventions that are likely to produce the desired treatment effects and determine nurse-sensitive outcomes.

Nursing diagnoses are seen as key to the future of evidence-based, professionally-led nursing care – and to more effectively meeting the need of patients. In an era of increasing electronic patient health records, standardized nursing terminologies such as NANDA-I, NIC and NOC provide a means of collecting nursing data that are systematically analysed within and across healthcare organizations and provide essential data for cost/benefit analysis and clinical audit.

Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I. Each nursing diagnosis undergoes a rigorous assessment process by NANDA-I’s Diagnosis Development Committee, with stringent criteria used to indicate the strength of the underlying level of evidence.

Each diagnosis comprises a label or name for the diagnosis, a definition, defining characteristics, risk factors and/or related factors. Many diagnoses are further qualified by terms such as risk for, effective, ineffective, impaired, imbalanced, self-care deficit, readiness for, disturbed, decreased, etc.

The 2012-2014 edition is arranged by concept according to Taxonomy II domains, i.e. Health promotion, Nutrition, Elimination and exchange, Activity/Rest, Perception/Cognition, Self-perception, Role relationships, Sexuality, Coping/ Stress tolerance, Life principles, Safety/protection, Comfort, and Growth/development.

The 2012-2014 edition contains revised chapters on NANDA-I taxonomy, and slotting of diagnoses into NANDA & NNN taxonomies, diagnostic reasoning & conceptual clarity, and submission of new/revised diagnoses. New chapters are provided on the use of nursing diagnoses in education, clinical practice, electronic health records, nursing & health care administration, and research . A companion website hosts related resources.

Key features

  • 2012-2014 edition arranged by diagnostic concepts
  • Core references and level of evidence for each diagnosis
  • New chapters on appropriate use of nursing diagnoses in clinical practice, education, administration and electronic health record
  • 16 new diagnoses
  • 11 revised diagnoses
  • Aimed at students, educators, clinicians, nurse administrators and informaticians
  • Companion website available, including a video on assessment, clinical reasoning and diagnosis
