Would like to know what your best references for when you started your Open Heart Recovery training? In our unit you "heart train" after about a year. I am looking for the best information that helped you get the best grasp on this particular skill.
All info is appreciated.

Books I found helpful were "Cardiac Surgery Essentials for Critical Care Nursing" by Hardin & Kaplow and "Manual of Perioperative Care in Adult Cardiac Surgery" by Bojar. These books are great for reference, but I agree that the best kind of training you will get is at the bedside from the nurses & doctors you work with. Keep an open mind, and ask lots of questions!
