This well-respected resource details the clinical significance of tests and diagnostic procedures. A strong emphasis on nursing process as applied to lab and diagnostic tests and on the relationship between nursing diagnoses and nursing care makes it a valuable resource for both nurses and nursing students. Each chapter can be used alone as an independent study unit-with objectives, an organizing theme with background information (called an expository organizer), and test questions.

Key Features: Focus on the Nurse explains how lab tests are used in nursing care and the nurse's role for diagnostic procedures, Chapters grouped by types of tests with objectives and review questions, Reference values and wide range of examples of use for entire life span and in a variety of settings, Current NANDA nursing diagnoses with specific nursing interventions for each test and procedure, Medical diagnoses and medical interventions with discussion of usual medical intervention for particular sets of circumstances.
