I'm a new grad RN who just accepted a position in a small ICU unit. I've read through many of the posts here, and see a theme of ICU nurses needing to watch for "subtle change." What subtle changes do you most often see, and what do they mean?
Also, does anyone have any advice for starting in the ICU? Other than the obvious "know your meds, know your lab values, know your pressures, etc..."
Thanks in advance for sharing!
