Editorial Reviews

Anne G. Perry
This book is designed as a reference for laboratory and diagnostic tests. It is clearly organized and includes indications for the use of the tests, reference standards, and interfering factors, to name a few. It is expected that the nurse/examiner uses standard precautions when collecting specimens. This two-part text has two specific purposes: to assist in the diagnosis and monitoring of clients with specific disease processes and to provide a concise, comprehensive reference about the specific diagnostic tests and laboratory procedures selected for client management. This is a practical, easy-to-use text. Tables, appendixes, and an inclusive indexing of diagnostic and laboratory tests achieve this book's purpose. Targeted for practicing nurses and other healthcare professionals and students within these fields, this book is appropriate for primary, acute, and restorative healthcare settings. Positive features include the alphabetical listing (in part two) of the tests; it is well indexed and has multiple tables, which enhance the narrative. A strong feature is the inclusion of risks, preparation of the client, postprocedure care, client education factors affecting test results, and test-specific bibliography. There is also a listing of general reference manuals at the beginning of the text. This laboratory book is a good clinical reference for the student or practicing professional in nursing or related health fields. This clear, concise diagnostic and laboratory test reference enables healthcare professionals to incorporate the test and its implications into the plan of care for their clients. The design of this text encourages the professional to use client teaching in allhealthcare settings.
