Caring for patients with vascular disease has always been a challenging and complex area of care for both nurses and other healthcare professionals. In the past, patients with vascular disease were cared for under the umbrella of 'general surgery'. There is now a clearer understanding of the need to provide specialist nursing to meet the needs of vascular patients. This book addresses all aspects of care and management for different vascular conditions and stages of the disease process that the nurse will encounter. Guidance is given in dealing with some of the very challenging aspects of vascular nursing such as pressure sore prevention, pain and wound management, as well as palliative care provision for patients with end stage vascular disease. It will help nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in caring for vascular patients to update and expand their knowledge of developments in conservative, radiological and surgical aspects of care. Shelagh Murray has drawn together the work of specialists who are experts within their field of practice, and the book covers all aspects of vascular nursing.
