Overview

Handbook of Laboratory & Diagnostic Tests with Nursing Implications, Seventh Edition, gives information about the commonly ordered laboratory and diagnostic tests, along with nursing implications and client teaching. It gives quick, pertinent information about the tests, emphasizing their purposes, the procedures, the clinical problems associated with disease entities, and drugs related to abnormal test results, as well as nursing implications together with client teaching. Reference values are given for children, adults, and the elderly.

Because the reference text is a handbook in pocket form, it can be easily carried to clinical settings. This text is appropriate for students in various types of nursing and non-nursing programs, including medical technology programs, baccalaureate and nursing programs, associate degree programs, diploma programs, and practical nursing programs. This book is most valuable to the nurse practitioner, registered nurse, student nurse, and licensed practical nurse in hospital settings, including specialty areas such as intensive care units, maternity, pediatrics, emergency rooms, clinics, health care provider offices, and independent nursing practices.
