Overview

This comprehensive text and reference provides essential guidance on over 700 laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures used in nursing. It provides background information on each test; explains normal and abnormal test results; and emphasizes nursing care for the patient undergoing the test. Normal values for each test and procedure appear in both conventional and international units, and cover all phases of the life span. And, over 120 unique tables display complications at a glance.

The book contains predominantly two-color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne G. Perry, EdD, RN (Saint Louis University School of Nursing)
Description: This revised edition text is designed as a reference for both 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. In addition, pertinent physiological and pathophysiological points are incorporated. It is expected that the nurse uses standard precautions when collecting specimens.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a ready, clinical reference for the selection and interpretation of laboratory and diagnostic tests. This is a practical, easy to use text in which physiological principles about the test or diagnostic procedures are integrated.
Audience: Targeted for practicing nurses and other healthcare professionals, faculty, and students, this book is appropriate for primary, acute, and restorative healthcare settings.
Features: The text is organized to initially outline the nurse's roles and responsibilities for laboratory and diagnostic procedures. The second and third portions of the text show organization of multisystem laboratory and diagnostic tests. The final section is a presentation of content according to body systems. Within each of these chapters is an alphabetical listing of the tests, and they are well indexed. Each test is presented in a concise, consistent, and logical format, which includes the normal findings, test explanation and related physiology, interfering factors, procedure and patient care (before, during, and after the test), and abnormal findings.
Assessment: 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.
