Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kristine M. L'Ecuyer, RN, MSN, CCNS (Saint Louis University School of Nursing)
Description: This revised book includes a comprehensive discussion of the most frequently used and the newest clinical laboratory and diagnostic tests. Notable updates and revisions in this third edition include the chapter on infectious and sexually transmitted diseases and the chapter on the reproductive system. New to this edition is a chapter on tests to monitor cancer.
Purpose: This book provides nurses with a comprehensive review and discussion of the data routinely used in the clinical setting for assessment, planning, implementing, and evaluating nursing care. The data can also be used as a guideline for patient education before and after tests. The impact of the findings on medical diagnosis, nursing needs, treatment plans, and ultimate recovery are also included.
Audience: It is intended for nursing students to help them understand the relationship of a test to the clients medical problems, and it is a valuable tool for practicing nurses as well. It would be a useful reference for any nursing unit.
Features: The outline format and the use of tables and figures aid in the application and understanding of the content. Discussions of normals, definitions, physiology, and pathophysiology are included in the clinical laboratory section. Explanation of the tests, discussion of the procedure, and its uses and findings are included in the diagnostic modalities section. Nursing implications are emphasized throughout the book.
Assessment: This comprehensive text is an excellent reference tool for the student nurse or the practicing nurse. The discussion of physiology, pathophysiology, and the emphasis on nursing implications make this text valuable in application of previously learned knowledge and as a patient education tool. The discussion of laboratory tests for specific body systems as well as the updates in various subspecialty areas make this text a valuable resource in almost any patient care area..
