    For those that have Thelan's "Critical Care Nursing 5th Edition", I have a question for you:

    Is the depth of knowledge in this book fairly representative of what you need to know in the MICU/SICU, or is it overkill?

    The reason I am wondering is because I start orientation in the MICU/SICU next week as a new grad and I am trying to assimilate this book by covering the major system alterations by spending a week on each [three cheers for vacation]...and I just want to make sure I am making an efficient use of my time.

    "The ICU Book" by Paul Marino is the book to have. It was recommended to me by one of our surgical residents, seems every nurse, resident, and intern around here has a copy or wants one.

    I'll second that!

    oh, and any other advice for me!
    thanks,

    this is alittle late to respond to your question as you may have already have purchased some type of icu reference material. i agree with some of the above posts, i to like The Icu Book, and ICUFAQ'S. when i was studying for ccrn, i was given a copy of "Critical Car Nursing made Incredibly Easy by lippincott williams & wilkins". its sort of like the icu book, pretty strait foreward and explains things without alot of fancy jargon. i now pass the book along to all the new folks that come to our unit's. it's really a easy read and gets to the nuts and bolts of things. but what ever book you decide to get, look at who the books contributors and consultants on the material. make sure they are actual practicing rn's that work in icu's. i've seen some books that are written by education types and they read just like an nursing school book "long and boring" and you have to read through so much to get to the point. good luck...

    Hi everyone. Thanks for all the responses. I'm thinking of purchasing 'The ICU Book' based on the recommendations here. I read reviews on amazon, and some folks believe the earlier editions are better than the current 3rd edition. I usually assume the latest edition is better than previous ones. Would anyone who has read the different editions please let me know if indeed the older editions are better or if I should go ahead and get the 3rd ed.

    Thank you!!:heartbeat
