The ability to interface patient monitors directly to a computer, and generate a clinical record has existed for over 20 years. However, the acceptance of comprehensive electronic medical records in anesthesia has been slow to develop. Experts anticipate this reluctance is changing because of enhanced patient care through the use of detailed health information record systems. Anesthesia Informatics provides the health informatician and administrator with a comprehensive overview of this blossoming technology. With contributions from leaders in the field, this user-friendly guide addresses how this technology has enhanced both the need for and the ability to collect and apply data in an acute care setting. It also offers invaluable insight on the business implications and the rationales required to make a purchase decision. Each section outlines need to know information to help the reader with the implementation and utilization of an Anesthesia Information Management System. Useful case scenarios focus on the ideal components (anesthesia record, business rationale, communication, collaboration, and training) of a fully automated record-keeping system.

The Quotable Machiavelli
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Niccolò Machiavelli (1469–1527) is the father of modern political thought, but he is also one of the greatest writers of the Renaissance and his wisdom and style extend far beyond politics to encompass a compelling philosophy of life as well. In The Quotable Machiavelli, Maurizio Viroli, one of the world's leading Machiavelli scholars, offers a rich collection of the Florentine’s most memorable words on a wide range of subjects, including politics, the human condition, religion, love and happiness, antiquity and history, patriotism, and virtue. Drawing on Machiavelli’s entire body of writings, and including little-known quotations as well as famous passages, the book shows the full scope of his thought and belies the cliché that he was a "Machiavellian" cynic. In addition to Machiavelli’s own words on dozens of subjects of perennial interest, the book includes some almost unknown texts in which his contemporaries describe him. Complete with a biographical introduction, the book serves as a handy reference and a smart and lively introduction to a masterly thinker and writer.

Psychiatric nursing, although advanced in areas of interpersonal skills and manpower management, have been sadly lacking in the area of research relating to practice. This book aims to provide empirical evidence in relation to understanding a fundamental aspect of the psychiatric nurses' role, namely what constitutes the therapeutic relationship. The problems nurses face in their approach to risk assessment and management, which is affected to a considerable degree by who defines that risk and how it is defined, are discussed. Furthermore, whether we like it or not, risk assessment and management is a regular and daily occurrence in health care. Using case vignettes from teaching and therapeutic research, the authors of this book explore ways in which inner and outer dialogues are at play as the mental health nurse attempts to make sense of the experiences of mental pain narrated by people in his/her case. In addition, work-stress and burnout complaints are increasingly leading to higher levels of absentee rates at work. Superimposed organisational demands, work overload and limited decision-making capacities are often associated with the development of occupational stress by nurses that eventually create a sensation of professional burnout. A comprehensive literature review relating to nursing burnout, an issue that has received increasing interest from researchers and healthcare administrators is explored in this book. Other chapters address individual work experiences, coping strategies and health decisions made by nurses for patient care.
