Abstract

Critical care nurses can use the personal reflective critical incident review to subjectively relate common experiences relating to crisis and then devise nursing strategies to help alleviate it. This review article, related to a current situation on an intensive care unit, helps the nurse cope with the stress of the unit. Critical care nurses must react to situations that affect everyone, including themselves. Analyzing their own reactions during a crisis situation helps nurses to accomplish this goal.
