Overview

LABORATORY AND DIAGNOSTIC TESTS WITH NURSING IMPLICATIONS, 9/e brings together current information on more than 420 modern laboratory and diagnostic tests, together with their corresponding nursing implications. For each test, it presents reference values/normal findings, descriptions, purpose(s), clinical problems, procedures, factors affecting results, and nursing implications with rationales, including client teaching. This edition contains new, rewritten, or updated coverage of dozens of tests, including IgE, arsenic, blood smear, chromosomal analysis, CBC, cyanide, cytokines, heroin, HIV, influenza, macular degeneration risk analysis, SCID, sexual assault/attack, ABG, bilirubin tests, C-reactive protein (hs CRP) and glucose, cardiac catheterization, echocardiography, colonoscopy, ERCP, CT, MRI, and many others. An updated section on Therapeutic Drug Monitoring now covers HIV drugs, and revised appendices address everything from abbreviations to test values.

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.
