Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…a comprehensive reference that is easy to read and full of relevant information…this book offers a broader perspective, nicely packaged, with several unique features that make it an excellent choice for both students and healthcare providers. Weighted Numerical Score: 95 - 4 Stars!" - Maribeth Moran, RN, MSN, CPN, CNE (University of Oklahoma College of Nursing), © Doody's Review Service

"The 700 laboratory and diagnostic tests in this reference are divided into 12 sections according to the body fluid analyzed or the type of scan performed. Each entry explains the basic pathophysiology behind the test, summarizes patient care and the procedure, and lists normal findings, critical values, indications, contraindications, potential complications, interfering factors, the clinical significance of test results, and related tests. The fourth edition adds 30 studies including breast cancer genomics, intravascular ultrasound, computed tomography of the heart, and platelet closure time. Online access is included."

This revised edition is designed as a reference for laboratory and diagnostic tests. The text 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. The alphabetical listing of laboratory tests enhances the ease of using this text in clinical practice settings. It is intended to provide a ready clinical reference for the selection and interpretation of laboratory tests. This text integrates physiological principles about the test or diagnostic procedures. It is targeted for practicing nurses and other healthcare professionals and faculty and students within these fields. This book is appropriate for primary, acute, and restorative healthcare settings. Positive features include the alphabetical listing of the tests and the well-done index. Each test is presented in a concise, consistent, and logical format. This format includes the normal findings, test explanation and related physiology, interfering factors, procedure and patient care (before, during, and after the test), and abnormal findings. This laboratory book is a good clinical reference for the student or practicing nurse. Nursing students need clear, concise diagnostic and laboratory test references in order to incorporate the implications of these tests into the plan of care for their clients.
