They assume that students have completed decent high school programs in maths and physics and are concurrently taking subjects in the medical sciences. Additional chapters cover more advanced topics in this field. Our focus in this wikibook is the diagnostic application of Nuclear Medicine. Therapeutic applications are considered in a separate wikibook, "Radiation Oncology".

This open educational resource (OER) was developed to ensure best practice and quality care based on the latest evidence, and to address inconsistencies in how clinical health care skills are taught and practised in the clinical setting. The checklist approach, used in this textbook, aims to provide standardized processes for clinical skills and to help nursing schools and clinical practice partners keep procedural practice current. Each skill/procedure is covered in a chapter that has learning objectives, a brief overview of the relevant theory, checklists of steps for procedures with the rationale behind each step of the process, and a summary of key takeaways. Key terms are set in bold throughout the book and laid out again in a Glossary in the appendix. All 88 checklists are also summarized, and hyperlinked to the original checklist, in the appendix.

This publication of the second edition of Critical Care Nursing of Infants and Children is another important milestone in the evolving development of pediatric critical care nursing. It often surprises students and colleagues when I discuss my experiences in the days "before pediatric intensive care units." They cannot conceive of a time when these specialized units, along with their highly technologic treatments, were not available to facilitate the care of critically ill children. During this "before" period, seriously ill children were cared for on regular hospital units with minimal technology. Staff nurses were often assigned to "special" the child, unless the family provided a private duty nurse. Sometimes a separate room was set aside for care of several seriously ill children so that one nurse could care for several children. The level of expertise of these staff and private duty nurses, however, was not adequate for the intensive care needs of critically ill children. Obviously children with serious health problems or children recovering from major surgery were at high risk of dying because adequate treatments and monitoring measures were not available.

Wellness is being in good physical and mental health. Because mental health and physical health are linked, problems in one area can impact the other. At the same time, improving your physical health can also benefit your mental health, and vice versa. It is important to make healthy choices for both your physical and mental well-being.
Remember that wellness is not just the absence of illness or stress. You can still strive for wellness even if you are experiencing these challenges in your life.
