Hello everyone, 

I am looking for a good reference book or website that I can quickly look up diseases and surgeries I have never heard of and quickly know some common complications/what to look out for. My old med surg books from school are not great for this and uptodate can be a bit overbearing when I am tripled in the ICU as a new grad as is every other nurse! (no time to help me figure things out) I have felt a bit reckless when I come into work and have a very sick patient and no time to look into the type of surgery they had until 2-3 am when things mellow out. 

 

Any other advice is greatly appreciated.  

Thanks!
