.. .Every nurse should have access to this wonderfully easy to use guide.

This book is indeed a book of brains and a collection of wisdom all rolled up in a compact size book! Concise triage information is easy to read and zooms in on the most important points. It is a must for every nurse that is met with emergencies.--Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio, RN, PdD As a seasoned nurse with experience in the triage arena, I can unequivocally say that the Rapid Access Guide for Triage and Emergency Nurses is well-written, beautifully designed, comprehensive, convenient to use, and fully evidence-based. Triage sits at the gateway to urgent and emergent care, and this guide can alleviate the bottlenecks, confusions, and missteps that weaken the triage process, endanger patients, and otherwise throw a wrench in what should be a well-oiled assessment machine. The arrangement by body systems increases the guide's usefulness in chaotic situations, and the red flag warnings are highlights that any triage nurse would be prudent to make note of and memorize. From comprehensive behavioral health assessment to life-threatening cardiac or respiratory emergencies, the Rapid Access Guide for Triage and Emergency Nurses offers the evidence-based information for triage and emergency nurses who want to be at the top of their game.--Keith Carlson, BSN, RN, NC-BC Nurse Career Coach, Podcaster, Author, Speaker
