I am heading to a new stepdown cardiac unit just created at our hospital. They split the one that is currently there - separating the chest pain/cath patients from the open hearts etc. I am looking for a book on cardiac nursing to aid in my transition from a med/surg telemetry unit. Any suggestions?

The only book I can think of at this time is Critical Care Nursing by Lippincott. Another is a Critical Care Infusion book and a Ekg book. These are the books I carry around in my bag at all times. Some things you are going to learn just by hands on but these books are going to help. I hope this help.

ck out icufaqs.org. Great computer resource. I bought the book and use it all the time!
