It was a very long chapter (100 pages) with a lot of information. While I could do many of the chapters in one sitting, I had to spread this out as it was a lot of info to take in.

The section on heart failure was the most difficult to read, author did not present the information well. The author put a lot of emphasis on the nurses need to educate oneself regarding diagnostic and medication titration/ management which I feel is inappropriate and requires a NP/PA or MD license.
